The press and the palace: the two-way relationship between Abdulhamid II and the press, 1876-1908
Boyar, Ebru (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2006-01-01)
While Abdulhamid is usually represented as an extreme example of a 'censorship sultan', this article seeks to redress the balance and to present a more nuanced picture of Abdulhamid's relationship with the press. Based largely on archival material from Istanbul, the article investigates how press magnates sought to use their relationship with the palace in order to ensure their survival and to gain the concessions they wanted, and how, in turn, the sultan manipulated the press and used it to cultivate his o...
'Jewish-Kurds' or the new frontiers of Turkishness
Yegen, Mesut (Informa UK Limited, 2007-02-01)
Yegen analyses the sudden appearance of the uncanny term 'Jewish-Kurds' in the language of Turkish nationalism. He sees the term as a symptom of a new idea of 'we-ness' (Turkishness) in Turkish politics. Analysing citizenship texts and practices in Turkey, he argues that the frontiers of Turkishness as designated by Turkish citizenship have always been precarious, and that Jewishness and Kurdishness played fundamental roles in their formation after the foundation of the Turkish Republic. Based on this analy...
The changing image of the Kurds in Turkish cities: middle-class perceptions of Kurdish migrants in Izmir
Saraçoğlu, Cenk (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
Saracolu deals with the ways in which the Kurdish migrants living in the western cities of Turkey have been identified in middle-class discourse by certain pejorative labels and stereotypes. He argues that this new Kurdish image demonstrates the ethnicization of longstanding anti-migrant sentiments in Turkey. He develops and substantiates the argument by means of qualitative data gathered in a field study in Izmir between June 2006 and July 2007. The study involved ninety in-depth interviews with middle-cla...
Foreign investment in producer services - The Turkish experience in the post-1980 period
Tokatli, N; Erkip, F (1998-02-01)
Since 1980, Turkey has been changing its growth strategy from protectionist import substitution to one more market-oriented and outward looking. As the restructuring has unfolded, the domestic market has opened up to foreigners. This paper discusses the increasing involvement in the economy of producer service firms with foreign capital. We describe 278 such firms: when they entered the Turkish market, their countries of origin (mostly European Community countries), industry groups and ownership structure. ...
Stability and change at cadir Hoyuk in central Anatolia: a case of Late Chalcolithic globalisation?
Steadman, Sharon R.; McMahon, Gregory; Arbuckle, Benjamin S.; von Baeyer, Madelynn; Smith, Alexia; Cihan, Burçin; Hackley, Laurel D.; Selover, Stephanie; Spagni, Stefano (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2019-01-01)
Scholars have recently investigated the efficacy of applying globalisation models to ancient cultures such as the fourth-millennium BC Mesopotamian Uruk system. Embedded within globalisation models is the 'complex connectivity' that brings disparate regions together into a singular world. In the fourth millennium BC, the site of cadir Hoyuk on the north-central Anatolian plateau experienced dramatic changes in its material culture and architectural assemblages, which in turn reflect new socio-economic, soci...
