Reconceptualization Sexuality and Rethinking Homophobia in Metropolitan Campus Spaces
Deniz, Caglar
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v15 n1 p228-251 Mar 2017
The Metropolitan city gives non-metropolitan students an opportunity to meet new social groups. In this article, the perceptions of sexuality of those students who come from provincial areas to a metropolitan city for university education are examined within a framework of semi-structured interviews. The study on which this article is based used a mixed-method design to discuss sociological typologies of youth and everyday life for young people in Turkey, particularly in the universities of Istanbul. As the biggest city of Turkey, Istanbul may be considered as the only metropolitan city in Turkey. My aim, in this qualitative study, is to discuss the opinions and perceptions of non-metropolitan students about the metropolitanized province, about relationships between men and women and about their experiences of LGBT student organisations in the metropolitan city.
