Social Construction of Southeastern Turkey Through the Bliss
National Forum Journals
National Forum of Multicultural Issues Journal
This article examines how sociological imagination of the individuals living in southeastern Turkey is constructed through Movie, The Bliss. Traditional and modern forms of life are symbolically constructed in this movie. The framework of “honor killing,” “masculinity in southeastern Turkey," “cultural deficiency,” and “othering” will be analyzed to explicate how stereotypical southeastern characters are reproduced. Content analysis technique is applied to interpret apparent and latent contents, contexts, aspects and so forth. Developed categories are revisited through Ibn Khaldun's Typology, cultural deficiency theory, Tonnies’ theory, Durkheim’s view on society, and Goffman’s framing process.
