2010
Erşahin, Direnç
The aim of this study is to position TürkSolu (TurkishLeft), a weekly newspaper, and its accompanying organizations in Turkey’s contemporary socio-political environment. TürkSolu, which defines itself as secular/leftist nationalist, will be investigated as a form of reactive nationalism that becomes viable in 2000s. By this means, it will be argued that TürkSolu’s secular/leftist nationalism is a form of extensively ‘exclusive’ – ethnicist – interpretation of nationalism.
