The Dramatization of Cultural Hybridity and the In-Between Turkey in Fazıl\u27s Künye

By Önder Çakırtaş


In his article The Dramatization of Cultural Hybridity and the In-Between Turkey in Fazıl\u27s Künye Önder Çakırtaş addresses Turkey\u27s historical context and exposes how political, social and cultural changes were expressed in Turkey\u27s public sphere. Using Niyazi Berkes\u27s theory of secularism as proceeding of modernism Çakırtaş discusses different examples of stylistic strategies of cultural hybridity in the playwright\u27s historical-based play, Künye. He investigates how political changes in pre-Turkey times signify Turkey\u27s national striving, and how the Ottoman-conservative past metamorphoses into Turkic-secular. The study juxtaposes the perceptions of \u27introduction to Westernization\u27 and \u27departure from Islamic past\u27 in a period of the national shaping of modern Turkey
