Postmemory of the Armenian Genocide: A Comparative Study on the 4th Generation in Turkey, Armenia, and Diaspora

Start date: June 2015
End date: June 2017

It’s been hundred years since the Armenian Genocide. Today, the grandchildren of the victims are the 4th generation after the Genocide. The memory of this generation, constructed through the transmission from older generations, plays a key role in the process of confrontation with, and working through the past in Turkey. As a research group from Sociology Department at the Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts (MSGSÜ), and Association for the Study of Sociology of Memory and Culture (BEKS), we have started a research on the memory of the Genocide among the Armenian young people in Turkey. In the second part of the research, we aim to perform interviews with young people in Yerevan and diaspora to compare the memories of the Genocide among all groups. The purpose of this research is to analyze the post-memory of the Genocide in its comprehensive sociological dimensions and to determine the possible effects of the 4th generation after the Genocide in the process of confrontation with, and working through the past in Turkey. To this end, 80 in-depth interviews will be conducted with young people between the ages of 18-35 in Turkey, Armenia, and diaspora.

PLANLAMA KAVRAMLARI ATÖLYESİ

Mekansal planlama, yaşama alanlarımıza yapılan müdahalelerin gün yüzüne çıktığı ve elle tutulur hale geldiği alanlardan birisi. Bu alana müdahale ise planlamanın teknik terimlerle ve kavramlarla yoğrulmuş dili nedeniyle, bu dile hakim olmayanlarımızca güç olabilmekte.

Akademik ve teknik terimlerle yüklü hantal ve topluma uzak bir dil yerine, yaşayan ve canlı bir dili hep beraber oluşturmak niyetimiz. Bu nedenle teknik terimlerin ve kavramların arkasına gizlenmiş olan planlama alanının özünü hep birlikte kavrayabilmek için ve müdahale etmek, söz söylemek ve harekete geçebilmek için hepinizi ‘Planlama Kavramları Atölyesi’ne katılmaya, birlikte öğrenmeye, tartışmaya, katkı sunmaya davet ediyoruz.

Middle Class Backgrounded Youth of Big-city Areas and Their New Life Style

Although studies concerning “youth” in sociology literature have been existing till the beginning of the institution of the discipline, after 80s, multi-dimensional and interdisciplinary analyses prescinding the case from “education sociology” which was primarily dealing with this fraction of society as a social problem.  This had pioneered to the institutionalization of “youth sociology” as a sub-discipline of sociology through the world. It is a fact, attested by social scientist, that in modern societies the life period what is called “youth” has extended. As is the case in mostly world cities, young people in big cities in Turkey postpone also entering mature life, leave their families and build their own lives considerably late, belatedly delve into a working life that would provide them a stable status, and marry at a later age. Furthermore, the unemployment increase is also affecting the youth. Although educated young people have elevated labor force participation rates, they are facing unemployment issues. In Turkey, the rise of “qualified people” unable to balance the rise of employment, is bringing forth the impairment of diplomas., forcing young people to continue in education period for a much longer time to obtain a higher academic level and on the other hand, conducing to a disappointment as they couldn’t reach committed positions.  Nowadays not engaging oneself with ultimate decisions concerning future, not taking responsibilities, taking roots into temporariness have come to define educated, middle class backgrounded and urban youth in particular. It is a fact that the conception of “establishment” has been transformed to an “establishment on the temporality” for educated, middle class backgrounded and urban youth. The extension of the passage to the mature life has created the opportunity for the youth to criticize and to reinterpret the values of mature society. In this process, youth culture has evolved into a “new life style” comprising the extended youth instead of being a conventionally defined phase lived, produced and consumed by high school and university youth. Our research will focus on issues influencing the emergence of this new life style peculiar to urban middle class backgrounded youth in specific such as prolongation of education process, postponing of marriage, passage to working life, separation from the family house, and military service. Besides those factors generating the fact in question, the research will analyze and try to bring theoretical explanations to the scope, effects on the cultural and the political as well as the features affecting existing social relations of the transformation as a whole. The scope of the communication forms and dimensions of the use of technology amongst youth affecting the process are as well included in the research. Besides a general examination of forms of perception of social reality and meanings attributed to this reality by the younsgters, their future plans, forms of self recognition and values, this new life style will be analyzed on three areas, namely, “cultural and everyday practices constructing the style”, “the new conception of family, friendship, sexual relations”, and “new forms of political activism”.

The number of researches concerning youth conducted in social sciences in Turkey can not be assumed sufficient. In addition, significant amount of researches conducted so far are either descriptive. This fact caused to a lack of contribution to the world literature and to some difficulties of institutionalization of “youth sociology” as a sub-category of sociology in Turkey. This project aims to bridge this gap and anticipates a multi-dimensional sociological analysis and theoretical contribution to the field of youth sociology by employing and developing conceptual instruments.

In terms of methodology, the distinctiveness of this research stems from aiming at the employment of qualitative techniques such as in-depth interview, focus groups, and participant observation in field research and the employment of statistical data in order to explicate social transformations affecting the research object. Moreover, the project aims at supporting the mechanisms of decision-making on each scale that determine social and cultural policies concerning the youth with its expected outcome.

Changing Middle Class and New Life Syles

Start date: Ekim 2013
End date: Ekim 2015
Supporters: Tübitak

Beginning with the 1960s, social scientists have observed the emergence of a “new middle class’ in western societies. In Turkey, the composition of the middle class began to change from the 1980s onwards and a ‘new middle class’ emerged throughout the 1990s. But the interest of Turkish social scientists in the topic has been relatively low. Contemporary studies have attested to the significance of the changing demographic composition in Turkey with its young population and to the growing importance of the middle classes relative to the wider society in our fast-transforming country. Entitled “Changing Middle Class and New Life Styles” our proposed project aims at contributing to this important field of study on middle classes.

Existing scholarship on middle classes usually focus on the profiling of the middle classes and conduct quantitative research, hence produce mainly descriptive studies. Data obtained by means of quantitative research techniques result in analytical categories which do not correspond well to real life cases. This project aims at attaining an analytically solid analysis by means of research conducted using qualitative methods and by designing a two-staged modeling which will rely upon data gathered from fieldwork, which will better reflect contemporary realities of the middle classes in Turkey. Taking Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of habitus and recent studies of lifestyles by German social scientists, fieldwork for this project will concentrate upon the following fields of scholarly inquiry: the construction of kinship and social relations; cultural practices and aesthetic sensibilities; consumption practices, use of technology and means of differentiation; religious beliefs, practices and ethnic leanings; political participation, assessments and attitudes; future dreams and expectations. We aim to see whether there are changes in the life styles in the new middle classes corresponding to the changes in middle class compositions during the last 20 years of social transformation.

This project will provide a multi-dimensional sociological analysis and conceptual contribution to studies of middle classes with the help of analytical tools that it will design and put to use. This study will generate unique and original conceptualizations and classifications that properly reflect contemporary social realities. Its results will lead to acceptable generalizations. Researchers will use a broad range of techniques such as in-depth interviews, focus group interviews, participant observation and discourse analysis; and statistical data will also be included. Data gathered from fieldwork will be analyzed by means of correspondence analysis. Thus, we will try to demonstrate life styles specific to new middle classes in Turkey. The results of this research will be beneficial to decision and policymakers at all levels in their making of social and economic policies.

Life in a “State of Exception”: Kurdish Memories of Southeastern Turkey in the 1990s

The “State of Exception” (in Turkish, Olağanüstü Hal-OHAL) was imposed in 1987 and lasted until 2002. It targeted the Kurdish regions of Turkey, including rural areas/villages and the cities of Diyarbakır, Bingöl, Elazığ, Hakkari, Mardin, Siirt, Tunceli, and Van. The “state of exception” was a regime in which the state apparatus, specifically the police and military, could not be legally questioned and state representatives as “super mayors” were protected by special anti-terrorism legislation (in the tradition of, but arguably even exceeding, those of South Africa and Northern Ireland). Thus, they took their decisions with total impunity, outside of the normal legal or human rights conventions. Most of these operations were undertaken by “persons unkown” and were, as a rule, publicly denied. It is for this reason that a project to reconstruct the memories of those who suffered during this period is absolutely essential.

According to official numbers (which may well be underestimates) 3,428 villages were forcibly evacuated, creating a flood of people heading towards cities like Diyarbakir, Mersin, Istanbul, and Izmir. Whole villages, livestock and surrounding fields were destroyed by fire, in the presence of their inhabitants, who were then forced to flee. Almost 17,500 people were “disappeared” – most were killed and their bodies have not been recovered or returned. Their murderers were unidentified and have not yet been brought to justice. No-one was judged for these operations. Although some military figures are now under arrest for these activities, the “state of exception” with its special anti-terrorism acts justified every unlawful operation at the time.

Even though the OHAL regime was officially ended in May 2002, key elements of the legal apparatus that was developed during that long period still exist and are still in operation. Since April 2009, thousands of mainly Kurdish activists and politicians have been imprisoned. There was even a surge in the numbers arrested toward the end of 2011, including Turkish journalists and academics from non-Kurdish regions, including Istanbul. This indicates that the “state of exception” continues in some form or another even today in the Kurdish regions of Turkey.

The special regime that was implemented in Southeastern Turkey from 1987 to 2002 is known as Olağanüstü Hal (OHAL), roughly translated as “State of Exception”. The consequences of OHAL are still visible in the region and there is a strong perception in the southeast of Turkey that it is in effect even today. OHAL was a military rule administered by civil authorities. The regime resulted in many human rights violations including extrajudicial killings, torture, destruction of villages, forced migration, forced conscription into paramilitary groups (koruculuk sistemi), etc.

The purpose of our project is to reveal the consequences of the OHAL regime on the Kurdish people, to make public the human rights violations to which they were subjected, and to disseminate their collective memories of the OHAL regime. The experiences of places like South Africa, Northern Ireland, and Guatemala demonstrate that it is necessary to confront the past for a reconciliation process to play its part in regional conflict resolution. We believe that the successful completion of this project will contribute to such a reconciliation process in the Kurdish regions of Turkey.

The 60 in-depth interviews we will conduct in the field will give a detailed account of the OHAL regime. We will conduct 30 interviews in Diyarbakır, 15 in Mardin, 15 in Mersin, 10 in Tunceli. These are the cities that were either ruled under OHAL regime or received considerable amounts of rural people who were forced to migrate as a result of persecution.  We decided to use the following parameters to analyse the OHAL regime:

  1. Living in OHAL

-Reaction to OHAL; silence, victimhood, fear, hopelessness, flight and political involvement

-Youth; growing up under the violence of OHAL, cultural assimilation (Turkification of Kurds), forced schooling in Regional Boarding Schools (YİBOs)

-Political socialization of the OHAL generations

-Common feelings in OHAL; new forms of solidarity, new social values, and re-organisation of everyday life.

  1. Memories of Violence

– Extrajudicial killings in Kurdish collective memory and commemorations

– Discovery of mass graves

– Memory of deserted villages

– Memory of “OHAL children”

– Women’s memory, “Saturday Mothers” and the disappeared in Turkey

– Transmission of OHAL experience from one generation to another

  1. A traumatised people

– The experience of collective trauma and associated individual traumas

– Post-traumatic stress disorders

– Lack of security; definition of security and traumatic effects of “state security”

 -Uninterrupted trauma; the trauma of forced migration, new city life, adaptation, poverty, etc.

– Fear of constant surveillance, criminalisation of victims

– Stigmatisation of Kurdish people as “dangerous citizens”

  1. In search of truth

– Coming to terms with the OHAL regime

– Reckoning with the past

– Creating conditions for peace and reconciliation

– The possibility of constructing truth commissions
