Fatherhood experiences of lower middle class men: the case of Eskişehir

Tecik, Zeynep
Like femininity, there is not one type of masculinity. Since there are different kinds of masculinities, there are also various types of fatherhood. Historical, cultural, economic, and social factors can affect fatherhood experiences in different ways. The aim of this thesis is to analyze the fatherhood experiences of lower-middle class men who live in Eskişehir and have at least one son. Within this context men’s relations with their sons and their fathers will be the focus of this study. Issues such as early childhood experiences, maturity, work life, education life, and domestic division of labor will also be included with reference to the fatherhood experiences of the men in the sample.

Işıkgil, Sena (2017-12-01)
In Ancient Greece, especially in Classical Athens, women are generally identified as intellectually inferior beings compared to men. Women are not seen as self-sufficient individuals, and they do not have equal rights with the males of the city. Even though, during Plato’s time the place of women in society is considered inferior to that of men, Plato seems as if he exhibits an egalitarian attitude towards the position of women and men in socio-political life due to some statements about women in his dialog...
