A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. From the early Attaturk years, Turkish radio broadcasting was seen as a great hope for sealing the national identity of the new Turkish Republic. Since the inaugural broadcast in 1927 the national elite designed radio broadcasting to represent the voice of a nation . Here Meltem Ahiska reveals how radio broadcasting actually showed Turkey s uncertainty over its position in relation to Europe. While the national elite wanted to build their own Turkish identity, at the same time they desired recognition from Europe that Turkey was now a Westernized modern country. Ahiska shows how these tensions played out over the radio in the conflicting depictions and discrepancies between the national elite and the people , cosmopolitan Istanbul and national Ankara and men and women (especially in Radio drama). Through radio broadcasting we can see how Occidentalism dictated the Turkish Republic s early history and shaped how modern Turkey saw itself. N° de réf. du libraire AA79781845116538

Synopsis :

From the early Attaturk years, Turkish radio broadcasting was seen as a great hope for sealing the national identity of the new Turkish Republic. Since the inaugural broadcast in 1927, the national elite designed radio broadcasting to represent the ""voice of a nation."" Here Meltem Ahiska reveals how radio broadcasting actually showed Turkey’s uncertainty over its position in relation to Europe. While the national elite wanted to build their own Turkish identity, at the same time they desired recognition from Europe that Turkey was now a Westernized modern country. Ahiska shows how these tensions played out over the radio in the conflicting depictions and discrepancies between the national elite and ""the people,"" ""cosmopolitan"" Istanbul and ""national"" Ankara, and men and women (especially in Radio drama). Through radio broadcasting we can see how Occidentalism dictated the Turkish Republic’s early history and shaped how modern Turkey saw itself.
