Abstract

Writing from within the cultural landscape of modern Turkey, "Fragments of Culture" presents exciting new writing on the everyday, providing a corrective to the often skewed perceptions of Turkish culture engendered by conventional western critiques. From adjustments to religious identity as the Islamic veil becomes marketed as a fashion item to the media explosion of interest in Turkish transsexual lifestyle to the strained cross-class relations between comfortably-off apartment tenants and their more humble doorkeepers, "Fragments of Culture" focuses on the diversity of contemporary Turkish life. This book contributes to both modern Turkish studies and the scholarship and debates on cross-cultural perspectives in cultural studies in the Middle East.
