  • Malaysian nurses’ views: Local versus Transnational Higher Education

    • Authors: Nirmala Devi Arunasalam
      Abstract: This paper reports the findings of a study undertaken with Malaysian nurses who studied for a locally provided part-time post-registration top-up Nursing Degree versus those who studied on a Transnational Higher Education (TNHE) programme. Both types of programmes are bridging courses that allow registered nurses to upgrade their Diploma qualifications to Degree level. What is not sufficiently explored in available literature is nurses’ rationales for choosing a local programme over TNHE programme. Using hermeneutic phenomenology, six Malaysian nurses (chosen by snowball sampling method) were interviewed, in English and Bahasa Malaysia (Malaysian language). Thematic analysis was used to analyse data. The structure of the course and taught theory influenced the nurses’ choice to study on a local programme: the deciding factor was the practice component that ensured a theory-practice connection. The findings principally provide insights to TNHE providers and may guide them to enhance their teaching delivery, support and courses.

  • Küresel Kültürün Üretimi ve Yerel Televizyon Yayıncılığı: Rize
           Yerel Televizyonlarında Program Oluşumu

    • Authors: Vildan Mahmutoglu
      Abstract: Küreselleşme sürecinde oluşan şirket birleşmeleri ve tekelleşme medya alanında da kendini göstermektedir. Ulusal yayın yapan medya kuruluşları da   büyük şirketlerin bünyesindedir. Medyanın asıl görevlerinden olan bilgilendirme, gerçek sorunlarla ilgili olarak gündem oluşturma ve kamusal alan oluşturma işlevleri günümüzde problemli olarak görülmektedir. Küreselleşmenin ekonomik boyutunda şirketlerin ürettiği ürünlerin dünyaya yayılması ve yüksek karların elde edilmesi beklenir.  Bu yayılım sırasında küresel kültür ve kültürel homojenleşme oluşur. Günümüzde küresel kültürün ulaştığında dönüştüremediği bir alan yoktur ancak bu değişime farkında olmadan da olsa geç teslim olanlar vardır. Yerel bölgeler sahip oldukları coğrafi uzaklıkla ve kültürel farklılıklarla küre-selleşmenin türdeşleştiren etkisine daha uzak durabilmektedir. Ulusal yayın yapan televizyonların sorunlu görünümüne karşın yerel televizyonlar yapısal olarak küçük şirketler olduklarından programlarını daha özgün bir biçimde oluşturabilmektedir. Daha önce yapılan doktora tezinin alan çalışmasından sadece Rize yerel televizyonlarına ait derinlemesine görüşmeler alınarak hazırlanan bu çalışmada, küresel/ulusal kültürel yayılıma karşın yerel televizyonların farklı programcılık oluşumunun ortaya çıkarılması amaçlanmıştır.EXTENDED ABSTRACT IN ENGLISHThe Production of Global Culture and Local Television Broadcasting: Program Formation of Local Televisions in RizeDuring the globalization process, integration of companies and monopolization manifest themselves also in media sphere. Media companies broadcasting nationally are under the big companies’ structures, too. The functions of informing, creating agenda about the real issues and creating public space, which are the basic duties of media, are seen as problematic at the present time. In the economical aspect of globalization, the spread of goods that the companies produced into the World and the generation of high profits are well-known and discussed. The other much-discussed subject is the spread of global culture and homogenization that it brought. Thanks to the constantly circulating cultural products, the differences disappear. Cultural dispersions and value transformations enhance demand for cultural products and together with the constant profits, culture industries get high revenues. Cultural homo-genization and cultural transformations are important for economic structure.There is no sphere that global culture couldn’t reach and transform. However, there are some spheres that accept this transformation late unwittingly and generated mixed cultures. These transformations occur in the areas that are far away from the center. Local regions are able to keep away from the homogenization effect of globalization by means of cultural differences they have.The target of media companies broadcasting nationally is to reach a large target group. While the programs are formed in accordance with this target, general viewers are taken into consideration. The advantage of local broad-castings compared to mainstream media is the recognition of targeted sphere and the fact that this sphere is limited. Since the companies broadcasting nationally have too much worry for rating and advertising, they don’t have any thoughts about restricting target group. This leads to the fact that programs are created for general viewers. Whereas televisions broadcasting nationally seem problematic, local televisions can be freer as they make program because they are small companies structurally. The influence of people making programs in local media into their programs are felt more compared to mainstream media. Since local media companies are small corporations, media employee can reflect himself/herself during the production process. The importance of local media employee in creating agenda is really recognized.  The main theme of this study is to find out the differentiation among local televisions. This study is prepared by detailed interviews regarding only Rize local televisions from the previous doctorate study. It is aimed at revealing different programming formation by contrast with the understanding of programming in local televisions and global/national cultural dispersion.

  • Cinematic Search for Identity in the Shade of Turkey’s 1960 Coup: The
           Social Realism Debate and The Hope

    • Authors: Ayman Kole, Celal Hayir
      Abstract: When the Turkish army seized power on May 27th, 1960, a new democratic constitution was carried into effect. The positive atmosphere created by the 1961 constitution quickly showed its effects on political balances in the parliament and it became difficult for one single party to come into power, which strengthened the multi-party-system. The freedom initiative created by 1961’s constitution had a direct effect on the rise of public opposition. Filmmakers, who generally steered clear from the discussion of social problems and conflicts until 1960, started to produce movies questioning conflicts in political, social and cultural life for the first time and discussions about the “Social Realism” movement in the ensuing films arose in cinematic circles in Turkey. At the same time, the “regional managers” emerged, and movies in line with demands of this system started to be produced. The Hope (Umut), produced by Yılmaz Güney in 1970, rang in a new era in Turkish cinema, because it differed from other movies previously made in its cinematic language, expression, and use of actors and settings. The aim of this study is to mention the reality discussions in Turkish cinema and outline the political facts which initiated this expression leading up to the film Umut (The Hope, directed by Yılmaz Güney), which has been accepted as the most distinctive social realist movie in Turkey.

  • An Attempt to Survive from Paralysis: Epiphanies in Dubliners

    • Authors: Goksel Ozturk
      Abstract: Amid the complexity of concern of the modernist literary discourse in Britain, the thematic nucleus of James Joyce’s writings is formed by certain basic aspects of life, such as individuality, art, religion, nation, language, and his work shows the two hypostases of the author himself as accomplished artist and Irish citizen. Joyce grasped the sense and the atmosphere of frustration, alienation, futility, chaos, and confusion. The concerns of Dubliners, consist in rendering the political and social life of Dublin, the misery of human condition, the theme of exile, the problems of the individual’s existence in an urban background which Joyce saw as paralyzed and, like Eliot, as an expression of a period of crisis in the history of humanity. All the fifteen stories of the book express life experiences of the characters that are of unpretentious standing, incapable to fulfil inner potentialities and to establish communication with others. At moments they experience relevant epiphanic realisations, seemingly due to some trivial incidents.

  • Wolfgang Borchert’in “Mutfak Saati” Adlı Kısa Öyküsüne
           Psikanalitik Bir Yaklaşım

    • Authors: Meryem Nakiboğlu
      Abstract: Wolfgang Borchert, İkinci Dünya Savaşından sonra ortaya çıkan, “Yıkım Edebiyatı”, “Sıfır Noktası” ya da “Kahlschlagliteratur” olarak bilinen edebiyatın tanınmış, genç ve en önemli kısa hikâye yazarlarındandır. O, hikâyelerinde yıkılan evleri, parçalanan aileleri, yoksulluk, çaresizlik, ölüm, yıkım, savaş sonrası yurduna döndüğü halde evlerini ve ailelerini bulamayanların dramatik halleri gibi konuları işler. Borchert’in hikâyelerinde işlenen, savaş travmaları sonrasında insanların ruh hallerini, yaşama tutunabilme mücadelelerini, savaşın tüm acımasızlığını en güzel biçimiyle yansıttığı “Mutfak Saati” adlı öyküsünü psikanaliz yöntemiyle incelemeyeceğiz. Çünkü o dönemde ne halkın ne de askerlerin psikolojisi sağlıklı değildir. Savaş, tüm ülke insanlarını olumsuz yönde etkilemiş; hayatta kalabilenlerin ise yaşamları boyunca unutamayacakları derin izler bırakmıştır. Yazarlar toplumun yaşam biçimine ayna tutan kişiler olarak varsayıldığında özellikle savaş dönemini bizzat yaşamış, kendisi de savaşmak istemediği için tüm baskı ve zorluklarla mücadele ederek bedelini fazlasıyla ödemiştir. Borchert’in bu kısa hikâyesi yalnız yaşandığı dönemi değil aynı zamanda günümüz dünyasına da bir nevi ışık tutmakta ve savaşı yaşayan insanların ruh halini bize en sade dille anlatmaktadır. Hikâyede ne adı, ne de kimliği ile ilgili yeterli bilgi olmayan kahramanın askerden dönüşü, evlerinin yıkılması sonucu yıkıntılardan tek kalan mutfak saatini sahiplenmesi ve bu çerçevede geçen konuşmalardan yola çıkarak kahramanın bilinçaltını ve geçmişini psikanaliz yöntemiyle tespit etmeye çalışacağız. EXTENDED ABSTRACT IN ENGLISHA Psychoanalytic Approach to Wolfgang Borchert’s Short Story named of “Kitchen Clock”In German literature, Wolfgang Borchert who has become well known after Second World War in Trümmerliteratur, Null Stunde as well as Kahlshlagliteratur. He is considered young and famous besides he was one of the most important story writers. His writings generally discussed destroyed houses, broken families, poverty, despair, death, destruction and the dramatic cases of those whose houses and families are affected and cannot return to their homeland after the war. The study will try to examine the psyhoanalyse method of the story “Kitchen Time” which involved the cruelty of the war based on the characters in the book. Wolfgang Borchert’s stories talk about the moods of the people who have experienced war trauma and survival throughout their lives. Because of neither it was lived emotional dissonance society nor soldiers at that period. The War has affected people all over the country in a negative way and it deeply and unforgettable engraved on survivors lifelong. The authors assumed that the people holding a mirror to society’s way of life who are particularly personally experienced the war period.
      Authors paid penalty for because of don’t want wage war and they tackled all pressures and challenges. The Bochert’s short story not telling merely his living events experiences, the story shed light on today’s world and it tells us psychological moods of people who are live on war with a plain expression. It is telling in story of one people who doesn’t have any information about himself and telling the lay claims of kitchen clock after destroying his house in war and it is going to ascertain of hero’s subconscious also case history with psychoanalyze method within this scope of speeches.

  • Policy Considerations regarding the Integration of Lusophone West African
           Immigrant Populations

    • Authors: Kezia Lartey, Brandon D. Lundy
      Abstract: On January 23, 2012, Resolution No. 3 enacted the National Immigration Strategy for the island nation of Cabo Verde, the first of its kind in the country. As a buffer nation to Western Europe with a rapidly developing economy and good governance indicators, Cabo Verde is transitioning from a sending and transit country to a receiving nation for African mainlanders, especially from Guinea-Bissau. How effective are these immigration policies at managing these changing mobility patterns? Are immigrants successfully integrating into host communities? How might integration be handled more effectively? This policy briefing reports integration successes and failures from ethnographic research and considers the effectiveness of Cabo Verde’s National Immigration Strategy based on these findings. Cabo Verde’s immigration policy targets structural reforms such as education, healthcare, and housing, while additional socio-cultural strategies encourage coexistence among neighbours. Three years out, our study observed positive effects, while also suggesting additional reforms.

  • The Fairy Tale Enchantment and Metamorphoses in Fay Weldon’s Novel The
           Life and Loves of a She-Devil

    • Authors: Tatiana Golban, Özge Karip
      Abstract: This article focuses on enchantment and metamorphoses motifs as used by Fay Weldon in her work The Life and Loves of a She-Devil. Since the encounter with magic is frequently stimulated by the human’s desire for more, the novelist explores these possibilities in order to represent the protagonists’ quest for the self. This study aims at discussing the protagonists’ encounter with marvellous and the way it triggers the process of metamorphoses. The transformation affects primarily the protagonists’ personality, as in the process of enchantment he/she dares to disclose her/his own potential, of which he/she was unaware prior to the exposure to wonder. This article also tries to reveal how Fay Weldon uses and subverts the mechanisms of enchantment because of her awareness that the apparently inoffensive transformations can cause privilege or repression of an individual.

  • Level and Gender Differentials in Inter-state Out-Migration in India

    • Authors: Imtiyaz Ali, Abdul Jaleel CP, RB Bhagat
      Abstract: By using unit level data on migration from nationally representative National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) for two points of time (1993 and 2007-08), this paper looks at the change in the level of employment related inter-state out migration in India. This paper brings out: the change occurred in the rate of inter-state out-migration between 1993 and 2007-08, the proportion of economically engaged women within the category of women who migrated due to marriage out of their state, the volume of employment related inter-state out migration of women, and finally, the propensity of Indian people for employment related inter-state out migration by their social, economic and geographical attributes. This paper finds a two times increase in inter-state out-migration in India during last one and a half decades. The increase is found even higher in many states/union territories and when we confine the analysis only to the working-age population. The gender gap has been glaring. Compared to 35 males per 1000 working age male population out-migrating across the border of their state of domicile for employment there is only 10 per 1000 working age females.  Further female migration in India is predominantly occurs within the state. Out of the total women inter-state out-migrants, 4 percent reported to have migrated exclusively for employment, while more than 80 per cent reported marriage as a reason of migration. In India, economic activity of women is under reported. Keeping this in view, we have tried to adjust the reason of migration for women. This study shows that the adjusted employment related reason of migration for inter-state women rises to 18 per cent at the all India level. The logistic regression analysis further shows that these women who reported marriage a reason of migration but actually part of the workforce belong to lower socio-economic households.

  • Constantin Brancuşi ’nin Heykellerinde Yöresellikten “Evrenselliğe
           Giden Yol” Ve Heykel Sanatına Getirdiği Yenilikler

    • Authors: Dalila Özbay
      Abstract: “Constantin Brancuşi’nin Heykellerinde Yöresellikten ‘Evrenselliğe Giden Yol’ ve Heykel Sanatına Getirdiği Yenilikler” adlı araştırmamın amacı, XX yüzyılın başlarında eser veren Romanyalı heykeltıraş Constantin Brancuşi’nin en önemli eser dizilerini inceleyip analiz ettikten sonra beslendiği geleneksel halk sanatından hangi unsurları aldığını, bunları nasıl kullandığını, neyi ifade etmeye çalıştığını ve heykel sanatına ne gibi yenilikler getirdiği ortaya koymaktır. Romanya’da sanat eğitimini alan sanatçı, Rodin gibi büyük bir heykeltıraşın yanında hayatının bir dönemini geçirdikten sonra ölünceye kadar Paris’te yaşamını sürdürmüştür. Şehirde modern bir hayat içinde bulunmasına rağmen Constantin Brancuşi, yetiştiği Romen toplumun halk geleneklerini, inançlarını ve yöresel motiflerini unutmayıp oluşturduğu yapıtlarında kullanmıştır. Yapıtlarını oluşturan yöresel bir anlam taşıyan formlar nasıl halen geçerli olan evrensel bir ifade biçimine dönüşmüştür? Birçok kişi tarafından ilk bakışta soyut olarak algılanan eserler, ancak Romen geleneksel halk sanatı, masalları veya inançları inceledikten sonra somut oldukları anlaşılacaktır. Constantin Brancuşi’nin anlatım biçimi, yöresel kaynaktan yola çıkarak evrensel değerlere ulaşmıştır. Sanatçının kullandığı formlar, Romen toplumunu anlatan kültür özellikleri taşısalar da evrensel bir ifade biçimini oluşturan arketip formlardır. Constantin Brancuşi’den önce görsel estetik açıdan akademik ideal güzelliğe göre değerlendirilen heykel sanatı, onun ifade yöntemi ile XX yüzyılın başlarında yeni bir sürece girip yeni estetik değerler kazanmıştır. Constantin Brancuşi’nin heykelleri üç gruba ayrılmaktadır: İnsan ve hayvan figürleri; ahşaptan yontulmuş antropomorf formlar ve kamusal alanlar için çalışılmış anıt heykeller. Bu araştırmada sadece insan ve hayvan konulu eserler incelenmektedir.ABSTRACT IN ENGLISH“The Path toward Universality” from Localness in Constantin Brancuşi’s Sculptures and the Innovations He Brought to the Art of SculptureThe main concern of this study entitled “The Path toward Universality from Localness in Constantin Brancuşi’s Sculptures and the Innovations He Brought to the Art of Sculpture” is to analyze the most significant series of works of Constantin Brancuşi, who is a Romanian sculptor of the early 20th century, and to reveal the elements he borrowed from folk art, which is his source of inspiration, how he used them, what he tried to express, and what is the artistic novelty that he brought into sculpture. The artist, who received his art education in Romania, spent his life in Paris until he died, after he lived with Rodin for a while, who was an important sculptor. Although Brancuşi lived a modern city life, he did not forget the traditions, beliefs and local motifs of the Romanian society he came from, and he used them in his works. How did the local forms that constitute his works, turn into universal expressions which are still valid? His works which are perceived as abstract at first can be seen as concrete once the Romanian traditional folk art, tales and beliefs are examined.  Constantin Brancuşi’s way of expression came out of local representation and reached to universal values. The forms he used are the archetypal forms that constitute a universal expression although they represent Romanian social and cultural elements. The art of sculpture which was evaluated according to academic ideal beauty in a visual aesthetical aspect, gained new aesthetical values at the beginning of the 20th century with Constantin Brancuşi’s way of expression. Brancuşi’s sculptures are divided into three groups. Human and animal figures, wood sculpt anthropomorphic forms, and public space monument projects and sculptures. In this study, only human and animal themed works are investigated.

  • Economic Analysis of the Refugee Influx to Austria

    • Authors: Johannes Berger, Ludwig Strohner
      Abstract: This paper presents an economic assessment of the current refugee influx to Austria. Conclusions that can be drawn from Swedish experience suggest below average labour force integration of refugees, particularly in the first years after arrival. The skill composition of refugees is taken from surveys. The simulation model PuMA suggests a considerable employment increase, particularly of the unskilled workforce. This rise in employment remains, however, significantly below the number of additional refugees. The unemployment rate rises and is concentrated upon the refugees, but to a smaller extent unskilled residents are affected as well. Furthermore, wage developments of unskilled residents are below average. GDP per capita is negatively affected as a result of below average productivity and employment opportunities of refugees.

  • Uneven Temporalities of Modernity: The Portrayal of Modernisation in E. M.
           Forster’s Howards End and Füruzan’s 47'liler

    • Authors: Burcu Alkan
      Abstract: Arguably a cultural consequence of the extensive societal transformation that is modernisation, the novel is a literary form that bears witness to, embodies and reveals its extent. Each literary tradition has its own version of the modern novel that seeks to make sense of the complexities of such an immense force. This paper compares two novels, E. M. Forster’s Howards End (1910) and Füruzan’s 47’liler (1974, Generation of ’47), in order to explore some of the similarities and differences between the English and Turkish literary responses to modernisation. The incentive for such an uncommon comparison comes from the uneven temporalities of the modernisation process in varying geographies that accentuate unique probabilities alongside general patterns. By choosing two temporally disparate novels from cultures that have differing experiences with modernity, it aims to challenge conventional approaches and encourage alternative perspectives in both literary traditions.
