Cultural Studies in Turkey: Education and Practice
Pultar, Gonul; Kirtunc, Ayse Lahur
Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, v26 n2-3 p129-153 Jan 2004
In this essay, the authors aim at contributing to the debate on "International Perspectives on Cultural Studies in/and Education" by presenting a perspective from Turkey, and problematizing the issues that are encountered in the country in the instruction and practice of cultural studies. They start with a brief survey of the Ege University Cultural Studies Symposium which launched in 1995 the first formal manifestation of cultural studies in the country. They then review the cultural studies departments, both graduate and undergraduate, that have been established in various universities. This is followed by an examination of the activities of the inter-university Group for Cultural Studies in Turkey. Finally, they discuss questions emerging for educators and practitioners of cultural studies in Turkey and argue that these constitute hurdles that need to be overcome for the proper institution of this interdisciplinary approach in this poly-cultural nation-state. (Contains 27 notes.)
