Contemporary Turkey at a Glance
Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Local and Translocal Dynamics
(2014) Springer: Berlin.
In the last twenty years, Turkey has witnessed significant social, cultural, and political change. This transformation has been visible in all walks of life and sectors of society, from political ideologies to the institutional set up of the state. As the country is changing, so is the academic literature, which has been expanding in parallel to Turkey’s growing economy and differentiating society. In this collection, 12 authors seek to elucidate the dynamics of this transformation from a distinctively interdisciplinary perspective with a focus on innovative conceptual approaches, and with the aim to introduce new methodologies to the study of modern Turkey.
