  • A Life Style in Turkish Tradition after the Pre-Islamic Period:

    • Authors: Mehmet Alparslan Küçük
      Abstract: Archerywhich is defined as “sports made witharrows and bows”, has an important share in hunting, nutrition and war artsin cultures with nomadic and warlike structures. Therefore, the Turks, whoadopted archery as a way of life and portrayed as “Archer Nations”, they gave names related to the arrows such as“Bozok” and “Üçok” for themselves. Turks who accepted arrow and bow as symbolsof justice and sovereignty, they have even defined such as “Khan for bow,loyalty for Khan for arrow”. It is already stated that the Turks use arrow-bowin every area of life, such as birth, marriage and death, and use the arrowthat it means symbol of hero/courage. However, it is also known that the Turkshave organized an “arrow-throwing race” as a way of proving their power.Moreover, the pre-Islamic oaths on the arrow-bow, which is an invitation/calltool, it constitutes a clear indication of the religious dimension andimportance attributed to the arrow and archery. The archery which has begun toappear in the foreground in the form of virtue/merit after the acceptance ofIslam. In this conception, it is visible that the influence of ProphetMuhammad’s hadiths. Hadiths are such as “Threepeople go to the heaven thanks to an arrow; the people who makes the arrow, whoproffer and who shoot… The one who learns to throw arrows and then leaves(without reason) is not from us” are only a few of these examples. Even itis rumored that Prophet Muhammad indicated that a father’s an obligation toteach his son archery. Thus, archery created a sense of “sunnah” in the Turksand was regarded as a “spiritual discipline”. In addition, the “Squares ofArrow” have been attributed to the sanctity and these squares have beendescribed in the form of “a piece from heaven”. Therefore, the Turks are notallowed to enter the squares of arrow, alcoholic or ablution and they haveshown care to say “Ya Allah” with therecite bismillah from the heart when they shooting arrows. As a result,archery, which is a sporting activity today, has become a symbol of life as a symbol of merit, justice, power, strength andcourage, as well as being an art, sports and religious motif in Turks, beforeIslam and after Islam.

  • Deconstruction Concept in Fashion Design

    • Authors: Birsen Çileroğlu; Mine Balcı
      Abstract: It isnourished by many philosophical ideas such as postmodernism, post structuralismand deconstruction which reflect the thought characteristics of today'sworld.The notion of 'deconstruction' derived from the philosophy of philosophyJacques Derrida 's postmodern philosophy continues to increase theeffectiveness and recognition of many areas.One of these areas is the fashiondesign.Fashion design met with the concept of deconstruction in the first yearsof the 1980s and broadened its scope of influence today. In fashion design,which has a system that renews itself continuously, deconstruction ideas andpractices provide valuable contributions to the renewal processes. Deconstruction has ameaning that can be re-interpreted according to the broad, uncertain, trivial,and changing worldviews. Hence, studies on deconstruction in the field ofclothing fashion are being investigated, presence of scattered data has beenfound and attempts are made in order to obtain clearer information for thisstudy by associating the fact that there is uncertainty in the deconstructionin nature. Aim of the study is to discuss clothing design elements with theconcept of deconstruction and to associate deconstruction items with clothingdesign elements according to the views obtained. A unique visual analysis formhas been developed that can be used to analyse the content of the concept ofthe deconstruction fashion, examine the existing deconstruction applications,and define what applications may be included in the deconstruction content. Thevisual analysis form consists of two categories, the appearance properties ofdeconstruction clothing and deconstruction analysis of the clothes. In thedeconstruction analysis of the clothes; unstructuring, restructuring,intertextuality and decentralisation are defined elements of clothing fashion.How and why these definitions are matched is described by design examples whilethe literature has been reviewed in the field. It is also thought that,matching is valuable for determining the appearance properties of the clothingaffected by the deconstruction. Deconstruction items were compared withclothing design elements, to determine and to attribute, which deconstructionitems could be considered along with clothing design elements.

  • A Sports with Religious Rituals from Hıdırellez Cult: “Kırkpınar Oil

    • Authors: Mehmet Alparslan Küçük; Cemal Ersin Silik
      Abstract: Hıdırellez,which is a concept that expresses the meeting of Khidr and Elijah on the earth.It is also on the foreground as a form of celebration on May 6th, in order totransition to the summer season, as an Islamic structure. In the historicalprocess, the Turks organized various festivals and fairs in order to celebratethe coming of summer, under the name of “Hıdırellez”. These festivals and fairs are performed in the greenareas. “Hidir/Khidr” which is inferredas a meaning “green, green area, greenarea abundant” is identified with “green”and “green area”.  Thus, "Kırkpınar Oil Wrestling"took place in the history as a tradition which is included in the Hıdırellezcelebrations and participated in various regions by wrestlers. Kırkpınar OilWrestling, which is an ancestor sport and became a tradition starting with thememory of two martyrs during the Ottoman Period, is separated from other sportsbranches in terms of religious rituals. Kırkpınar Oil Wrestling which isdepicted as the most beautiful and eximious of greasy wrestling, begins withshout “Allah Allah” accompanied with Mevlid-i Sharif and prayers after theFriday prayer. In wrestling, wrestlers wear Kıspet which is evaluated as “Bed of Nails” according to Islamiccustoms and traditions. The wrestler who wears Kıspet reads “Three Ihlas andFatiha surahs” towards Kiblah. Kıspet has three knots which are revive in mindas “Serve Allah, Ummah the Prophet(Muhammad) and Right of Pir”. It is also stated that wrestlers who do notreturn to Kiblah and who do not know the meaning of the three knots are notallowed to be in the wrestling square. However, in the process of preparing forthe wrestling (peşrev), the wrestlers turn towards Kiblah and the wrestlers arekneeling, taking their right hand from the ground three times, to the knees, totheir lips and to their heads. It means that the wrestler is not to be arrogantwith his power and mastery, wrestler come from the earth and he will turn tothe earth again and his own characteristics mean a trust of Allah. There isalso a religious interpretation of going three steps back and forth. As aresult, Kırkpınar is a local tradition that belongs to the Turks as part of theHıdırellez cult and exhibits a different structure from other sports brancheswith its religious rituals.

  • The Physical Self Perception and Body Image Satisfaction Profile of the
           Young Man Slalom and Cross-Country Skiers in Turkey

    • Authors: Okan Gültekin
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to determine the physical self-perception and body image satisfaction profile of the young man slalom and cross-country skiers and to investigate the relationship between physical self-perception and body image satisfaction. The Physical Self Perception Questionnaire and Berscheid, Bohrnstedt, Walster(1973), Body Image Questionnaire were administered to 30 slalom skiers and 20 cross-country skiers who participated national camp in Bursa/Uludağ, Kayseri/Erciyes for slalom skiers, and in Erzurum/Palandöken and Bursa/Uludağ for cross-country skiers. To determine the demographic structure of subjects personality knowledge form was used. “t” test was used to compare the total scores of physical self-perception and body image satisfaction. In order to identify the differences between the body image and physical self-perception in terms of demographic variables, one-way and two-way ANOVA were used. The statical significance level was .05. Tukey t-test used as post hoc of analysis of variance. Statistically significant difference between young man slalom and cross-country skiers’ scores of body image was found (P<0.05). The second variable taken into account in this study is physical self-perception has 5 subscales. (1) physical condition, (2) physical self-worth, (3) strength, (4) sport competences, (5) body attractiveness. In terms of the scores of physical self-perception and its subscales no significant differences between young man slalom and cross-country skiers was found (P>0.05). The correlation was studied between body image and physical self-perception subscales. Physical self-worth and strength subscales were found to be correlated at statistically significant level with body image (P>0.05). But sport competence and physical conditions were not found to be correlated with body image (P>0.05) Young man slalom skiers found to be more satisfied from their body image than cross-country skiers this is because of young man slalom’s practices styles and interactions of application. This difference could be explained as the way of cross-country skiers’ closing the gap is substituting the hard aerobic exercises and strength exercises instead of positive physical self-perception.

Specifically we examine how behaviororiented attitude, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control influencefans buying intentions. The sample of the study consisted of 310 randomlyselected people living nearby the city center of Istanbul city in Turkey. TheStatistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used for the analysis of thedata obtained from self-administered questionnaires. A multiple regressionanalysis was used as the main analytical tool to test our research hypotheses.The results evidenced that attitude toward behavior, subjective norms, andperceived behavioral control positively influenced the fans buying intentions.The effect of perceived behavioral control on purchase intention was foundstronger than the first two predictors. Although perceived control appeared tohave a relatively strong effect on purchase intentions of fans, it can changeover the time and thus, affect the future purchase intentions. In this manner,it is of prime importance for sports clubs to integrate that into their salesstrategies, because they rely heavily on the sale of their licensed products.Other implications and limitations are further discussed.

  • Kitsch: In the Shade of Romanticism

    • Authors: Ersin Berk
      Abstract: Romanticism is an art movement that rose as areaction against both the social problems the Industrial Revolution gave riseto in the 18th century and the harsh tone of Classicism. Examples of thismovement that deeply affected literature, philosophy, architecture, music andplastic arts in 19th century can be encountered in many different Europeancountries. Though Romanticism cannot be put into certain sharp limits in termsof style and content in art history, some common points felt in virtually allthese works of art instantly stand out. Among them, the foremost is dealingwith emotion-intensive themes and making use of a comprehensible style/speechthat can be easily followed by all segments of society. In this study, theresemblance of these stylistic characteristics to some of the basiccharacteristics of the Kitsch concept which came into existence in the secondhalf of the 19th century due to the technical facilities of the IndustrialRevolution and which is also described as ‘inauthentic/artificial art’ has beenincluded. The main objective of the study is both to highlight the historicaland social reasons of the stylistic resemblance between Romantic movement andthe Kitsch concept and to emphasize the discrepancy between the above-mentionedconcepts. In the study using document analysis method, it has been remarkedthat Romanticism is an aesthetic category and Kitsch is a socio-cultural one.Furthermore, it has been concluded that Kitsch utilizes the Romantic aestheticsto a large extent in order to address large masses.
