Kayıp Bellek: Mübadeleden Önce Gölde (İncesu)

This paper aims to reveal the collective memory of Gölde (İncesu), a neighborhood of Kula-Manisa, before the population exchange in line with the Lausanne Treaty of 1923. Before the population exchange, Rum Orthodox and Turkish Muslim communities were living together in Gölde. The built environment, economic activities, daily life practices, and rituals were shaped by the existence of these two different communities that shared a common life. After the population exchange, the Rum community left the settlement. Thus, various tangible and intangible characteristics of this bi-communal life are lost in time. This paper aims to reveal these lost tangible and intangible characteristics. This revealing requires an extensive and holistic analysis of the settlement before the population exchange. To be able to discover the tangible characteristics, the existing built environment is analyzed in detail with conventional techniques of architectural conservation. The buildings constructed before the exchange are deciphered and their original characteristics are analyzed. The intangible characteristics, on the other hand, deciphered via narratives of both existing locals and former Rum inhabitants. The oral history studies with existing locals are carried out by the authors whereas the narratives of former Rum inhabitants are obtained from the Center for Asia Minor Studies in Athens. The way of life, agricultural practices, economic activities, rituals and relationship of two communities are deciphered with the help of oral history studies. The analyses of both tangible and intangible aspects made it possible to understand the mutual relationship between the built environment and daily life practices; how daily life practices shaped the built environment or vice versa.
