YILDIZ, Süreyya
This thesis examines the concept of conservatory masculinity and its reproduction and representation through television, which is one of the ideological state apparatuses. One of the main aims of the thesis is to present that since the JDP came to power in 2002, it has adopted conservative democracy, and the connection with masculinity has come to the light in the last periods. Another aim of the thesis is to draw attention to how the relationship between conservatism and masculinity is adopted and emphasized in discourses and policies. This thesis focuses deeply on what kinds of impacts media has on society and the ways in which television which is one of the most-watched media tools constructs cultural hegemony, as well as the effects of the government discourses and policies which are reproduced through television serials. How conservatory masculinity is handled and processed in television narratives has been examined by narrative analysis through Sen Anlat Karadeniz serial.The serial of Sen Anlat Karadeniz clearly presents the relationship between conservatism and masculinity through the male characters and constructs the concept of conservatory masculinity in accordance with the basic principles of conservatism and masculinity.

On the one hand, the gaze makes these characters passive spectacles in front of the audience and objectifies them. On the other hand, the gaze appears to be a necessity for a sense of identity and order. The theoreti...

At the same time, the trans-exclusionary legal and structural changes made by states, institutions and organisations worldwide caused the gap between the parties to wi...

Şengül İnal, Gülbin; Sümer, Nebi; Department of Psychology (2014)
This thesis aims to examine the moderating role of sensory-processing sensitivity (SPS) in the relationship between caregiving, perceived social support and marital quality.

It was expected that if SPS has a moderating effe...
