Following the dead beyond the 'nation': a map for transnational Alevi funerary routes from Europe to Turkey
Zırh, Besim Can (2012-01-01)
Life-cycle rituals such as weddings and funerals vigorously stimulate transnational engagements among immigrant communities. On the basis of a two-year multi-sited ethnographic research project among Alevi immigrant communities in Europe, this article approaches the process of 'revival', by which Alevism has evolved from a locally invisible to a transnationally visible belief community, through the lens of mortuary practices. The 'mortuary focus' draws attention to the significance of funeral rituals to the...
Tracing the trajectories of memory: the Nike of Samothrace
Coşkun, Semiha Deniz; Güven, Suna Naziyet; Department of History of Architecture (2015)
How is it possible to trace the accumulation and flow of memory through ancient objects? Hence, how does the transformation of memory proceed in time? This thesis aims to reconstruct the roots of memory from the ancient era to the present by following the trajectories of a “masterpiece”, the Nike of Samothrace; and intends to observe the changes in memory by the means of historiography, museums, representation techniques and narrative through the sculpture.
Tracing repetition in the architectural plans of Enric Miralles
Kara, Deniz Dilan; Savaş Sargın, Ayşen; Department of Architecture (2017)
The concept of repetition is mainly developed by the theoretical realms of philosophy, literature and psychoanalysis. This thesis aims to reclaim repetition from theoretical realms of these mediums and to originate a link between repetition and architectural praxis as a drive of cognitive process and methodological execution. In this point, Enric Miralles’ architecture provides a substantial ground to seek repetitional operations. The concept of repetition enters Miralles’ architectural operations as a meth...
Tracing the footsteps of the young Leibniz in the labyrinth of the continuum
Ebetürk, Emre; Parkan, Barış; Department of Philosophy (2008)
This study is an attempt to explicate Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz’s search for a way out of the labyrinth of the continuum in his early years of philosophizing. The main motive of the study is the belief that it would be worthwhile to see how Leibniz initially goes into the labyrinth and comes across with the riddles contained in it. Accordingly, this thesis is intended to discuss what the problem of the composition of the continuum is for the young Leibniz, which concepts and metaphysical problems are as...
Traversing an Anatolian Village: Views From the Inside
Snyder, Alison B. (Middle East Technical University FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE, 2005-2-10)
Konutun ve konut içi mekansal bölüntülerin oluşması, tipik yapım yöntemleri ve yerel ekonomi ile olduğu kadar, sosyo-kültürel davranış ve işlevsel gereksinim açısından da anlaşılabilir. Yapılar ve içinde bulundukları bağlam, karmaşık bir mekansal ve kültürel ilişkiler ürünüdür. Araştırma, günümüz Türkiye’sinde orta Anadolu köylerinin geçirmekte olduğu morfolojik değişimi ve ev ile ev iç mekanının yeniden oluşmasını ele alan ender çalışmalardan birisidir. Yaşama mekanını farklı dönemlere özgülenmiş biçimde s...
