  • Effective Communication and Communication Barriers in Distance Education:
           Verbal and Nonverbal Communication

    • Authors: Yunus Emre SARI
      Abstract: Being able to communicate with audio and video through new media brings many practical benefits to education. As this new form of communication and education is entering people's lives more and more every day, the concept of qualification and didactic applications in distance education are discussed. With the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, distance education was introduced in many countries in 2020 to ensure the continuity of education and teaching. The fact that distance education has not yet been applied to such a large audience and at different levels has brought some negative effects. The transition from face-to-face to distance learning in a short period of time has forced both teachers and learners to learn and practice a new set of normalities.It is known that cameras are usually turned off in distance learning procedures. There are advantages and disadvantages associated with this situation. In this study, the importance of communication in effective training is discussed based on the relevant literature and conclusions are drawn regarding effective training in distance education. In this study, the importance of communication in effective teaching is discussed based on the relevant literature and conclusions are drawn about effective teaching in distance education. In the study, concepts such as models of communication, verbal and non-verbal communication, communication in education, communication in foreign language education and communication in distance education are discussed, and why the cameras should be open in simultaneous distance education.

  • The analysis of the character “Konrad” as a digital generation in
           Günter Grass's “Crabwalk” novel

    • Authors: Şenay KAYĞIN
      Abstract: In the novel “Crab Walk”, the story of the sinking of the ship “Wilhelm Gustloff”, which was torpedoed in the National Socialist period in 1945, and the family story of three generations of members of the Pokriefke family is mentioned. While “Generation Y” is known for their penchant for technology, “Generation Z” now uses the Internet and smartphones more effectively as a means of communication. Both digital generations are considered technology experts who use communication technologies well. The 2000s, when digital-based technological developments began to change life, can be considered as a turning point in this context. In the plot of the novel, when it comes to 1995, the story of young Konrad's crossing of paths with internet-fed antisemitism as a result of using the computer as a digital communication tool is also told. In the novel, the self-narrator Paul's failed journalistic career is ironically containing paradoxes by the fact that his son Konrad, a gifted computer user, regularly visits the Nazis' www.blutzeuge.de. Contrary to the failure of Father Paul, Konrad will be successful in obtaining the information he needs by acquiring a computer with the help of Grandma Tulla. However, getting the information he wanted, Konrad is involved in the act of killing a young man he met on the internet, while conducting successful research on the internet. With this incident, it can be said that a reference is made to the fact that the ideological propaganda works of the National Socialist period continued to be carried out through Neo-Nazism. In this study, the sections in which Konrad, a third generation family member, repeated the mistakes of previous generations by using the digital environment, will be analyzed with a text-oriented approach and will be shown with examples and quotations.

  • Jokes related to the topic of “Language” in GFL lessons and an attempt
           to didacticize them with an outlook on the intercultural aspect

    • Authors: Ebru ÜSTÜN; Asuman AĞAÇSAPAN
      Abstract: This article deals with language-related jokes and their concrete use in German as a foreign language lesson. The focus of this article is on the recommendation of examples for the use of language-related jokes in GFL lessons, which strive for the primary goal of dealing with stereotypes and the development of intercultural competence. To this end, it is clarified what is meant by the term joke, in particular what is regarded as a “language-related joke” in the study. Afterwards, the importance of using jokes in foreign language teaching is discussed. In order to provide adequate answers to the research questions, the research status was analyzed and in the practical part, jokes were selected and analyzed from various online sources that show the topic of “language”. At the end, these were each developed as a didactic suggestion. With the didactic suggestions it was shown that language-related jokes are very well suited for the development of intercultural competence by dealing with stereotypes and prejudices in GFL lessons. The didactic suggestions were created according to the “didactic analysis” model.

  • Symbolic Interaktionism And the Formation of Identitiy With the Foreign
           Language

    • Authors: Gönül KARASU
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate the formation of identity with the foreign language among German as a foreign language (GFL) teaching students by means of a silent film. For this purpose, the approach is presented that through silent films of the target language and the participation of the students with or without a German experience contribute to the identity with the language to be learned and also to different aspects of social life. The research questions are: 1- How do the GFL students with and without German experience act in a group' 2- Do the GFL students without German experience imitate the GFL students with German experience' 3- Do they encourage each other in the foreign language' From the point of view of symbolic interactionism, this study is based on a qualitative, pragmatic approach that tries to apply the perspective of sociology in relation to symbolic communication, based on Mead's approach, to foreign language teaching.During the screening of the silent film, the audition was stopped at certain points and the students' comments were recorded. After the implementation, the open plenary asked about their insight and their education with the identity of the language to be learned through semi-structured interview questions, to what extent silent films contribute to the adoption of the modes of action of the language to be learned and their self-confidence, which correspond to certain social processes through symbolic communication. Through this contribution the formation of the identity of the foreign language learner with the society whose language they are learning is presented and it should be able to serve as a basis for further qualitative analyzes in foreign language teaching.

  • The Free Space of the Indeterminate: Digitisation in Utopian-Dystopian
           Texts of Contemporary German Literature

    • Authors: Katharina Maria MÜLLER
      Abstract: Utopian-dystopian novels in contemporary German literature are increasingly devoted to the topic of digitalization and its related fields, as well as the questions, hopes and fears it entails. Of particu-lar interest in this context is the evaluation and categorization of individuals based on data analyz-es, which guide and shape the lives of the characters down to the smallest detail. The present work initially poses the question of how the texts represent social categorization and evaluation mecha-nisms within digitalized societies and to what extent these developments are critically commented on. The second part will then focus on the fact that these texts tend to realize this social positioning spatially and thereby use spatial-semantic structures to highlight potential dangers for the freedom and development possibilities of the individual. Michel Foucault's theory of governmentality and the theory of smooth and striated space developed by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari serve as the theoretical basis here. Literary examples are taken from the novels Qualityland (2017) by Marc-Uwe Kling, Die Hochhausspringerin (2018) by Julia von Lucadou and Technophoria (2020) by Niklas Maak.

  • Intermedial elements in “The Artificial Silk Girl”: Distorted
           self-perception as a result of society's social models

    • Authors: Merve CİHANGİR
      Abstract: In the following study, the novel “The Artificial Silk Girl” (1932) written by Irmgard Keun will be examined with special regard to intermedial aspects. The aim is to give visibility to Irmgard Keun’s work, to which no attention was paid in Turkey, as well as to look at it in an intermedial framework and furthermore to present the negative influences of the mass media using the case study “Doris” as a representative of young women in the 21st century. The intermediality and the reader-related method will be the guidelines of this work. Various media, such as film, music and advertising, are sufficiently addressed in the novel. Especially around 1920, due to the new image of women, which caused an enormous change in gender relations through the media and also influenced the equality between men and women, a clear turn of the woman of the 20th century becomes apparent. Media personalities largely become ideals for young women, resulting in a chasm between reality and fiction in the case study Doris. The aim is to list the negative consequences of the ideals of beauty conveyed by the mass media and, within this framework, to bring a contemporary, social as well as timeless problem before the readers' eyes.

  • The Generation Z Effect in German Youth Literature: A Literature Review

    • Authors: Neriman Nüzket ÖZEN; Harun GÖÇERLER
      Abstract: Especially since the early 2000s, young people have been able to share their problems, joys, ideas, life views, and lifestyles with young people from different countries and cultures on various digital platforms. In this way, a generation known as Generation Z has emerged with a unique life philosophy. This study aims to do a literature review by taking some of the German youth literature works written after 2000 as a sample. We tried to put forward what the subject matters dealt with in German youth literature are and why these subject matters have been chosen. The second aim of the study is to put forward suggestions on possible studies in Turkish youth literature. According to the results of the study, friendship, search for identity in society, dropping out of school, drug use and its consequences, injustice, family communication problems, life as a child of divorced parents, Cyber-Mobbing, love, science fiction, immigration, interculturalism, and crime are the subject-matters of German youth literature.

  • Adress Terms Used By Women In Turkish And German Digital Environments

    • Authors: Fatma ÖZTÜRK DAĞABAKAN
      Abstract: Salutations act as a defining feature in both daily speech and official language. Salutations are linguistic expressions used when beginning to speak, write or as an opening line in any written document. They indicate the sender's point of view towards the receiver. The people or groups addressed are called the addressee.In salutations and addresses research, the linguistic tools used when addressing an interlocutor are called forms of address. Linguistic forms of address can be divided into the categories of nouns and pronouns. The types of addresses in the name category include names, professional and other titles. The pronoun forms of the addresses are expressed as the pronouns of an individual. As a subclass of pronouns, personal pronouns refer to the sender or the addressed persons. Linguistic communication begins with addresses. It is part of social convention not to suddenly start talking to someone about any subject. In this context, addresses find a place in every moment of life.This article aims to examine the addressing expressions of women in Turkish and German digital environments. Internet has become a compulsory habit of people in all walks of life for today’s society. Individuals carry out their social interactions mostly through the internet, deriving their ideas about the topics of interest by following social media. A large part of the society, in which women have an important place, communicates through social media at every moment of time and display different types of address in every communication they establish. This study includes the linguistic behavior of women in terms of the addresses they use. As is known, men and women are different in many respects. These differences between men and women also find their place in the digital environment.In the theoretical part, which constitutes the first part of the article, the details of the subject will be examined based on the definition of addresses. In the application part of the study, social media texts in Turkish and German will be compared in terms of addresses in both languages. The data obtained will be evaluated in the context of women's bilingual use of addresses. As a result of this evaluation, the area of use of the female language in terms of addresses in Turkish and German will be shown, conclusion will be reached regarding the kind of differences and similarities that can be observed in both languages.Since Turkish and German addresses will be compared in the study, the examination will be carried out with a mixed method approach in line with contrastive discourse analysis and general descriptive-analytical methods.

  • The Panorama of the Period in Stefan Zweig’s “Chess”

    • Authors: Merve KARABULUT
      Abstract: Born in Vienna in 1881, Stefan Zweig personally experienced the war environment and always displayed a pacifist attitude in his works. Zweig's only wish for people is to find peace and tranquillity after the war. His last work called “The Royal Game”, which he wrote while he was in exile in Brazil between 1938-1942, is also of great importance in terms of the values he wants to show. Because of his intention to touch the human soul, Zweig tries to reflect the social and psychological effects of Nazism/ Nazi Germany in the country and people with descriptions and metaphors. In his work, which is a farewell letter left by the author before his suicide, at the point where war and war brought humanity, attention is drawn to another method used by the Hitler government for intellectuals apart from the concentration camps. According to Zweig, this method used is perhaps even more severe cruelty than the people in the concentration camps.Stefan Zweig, who has got an important place in the German Literature, conveys the survival/ trying to exist processes of individuals during the war despite all the negativities experienced through the game of chess in his work named The Royal Game. The chess struggle of a character who is a world chess champion with a character chosen is discussed. While revealing the brutality of the 20th century, it is possible to witness closely the traces left by historical events and what it means to try to live with those traces. In this study, it has been tried to convey the traces of National Socialism on society and people, and the destruction it created, based on the work.

  • Contrastive Analysis of Somatic Collocations in German and Turkish

    • Authors: Yeşim KARADAVUT
      Abstract: As one of the essential and natural components of linguistic competence, collocations are of elementary importance in both every day and formal communication situations. For foreign language learners, these pre-formed multi-word units represent production difficulties, since in most cases they have numerous structural and semantic differences between the mother tongue and the foreign language to be learned. In language production, learners often tend to translate the collocations in their mother tongue literally into the target language, which can lead to possible interference errors, especially in the case of divergences. Thus, the confrontational approaches to collocations in foreign language didactic discussions deserve special interest. Based on these discussions, the primary aim of the present study is to examine the somatic collocations in German and Turkish in the context of contrastive phraseology and, in the light of this interlingual consideration, to present the equivalence relations between the two languages in this lexical area. From the findings described in the analysis, some didactic conclusions for Turkish German learners are to be derived.

  • A New View on Katharina Reiss' Text Types Using Degrees of Alienness

    • Authors: Sine DEMİRKIVIRAN; Fayıka GÖKTEPE
      Abstract: Due to the increasing importance of concepts such as alienness and foreignness and the rise of xenological and phenomenological studies in the field of philology, a translational approach has become necessary. From a translation studies perspective, translators are exposed to alienness in every source text. The translator's focus is on the transfer of those foreign phenomena to the target text. In this context, it makes sense to benefit from both xenology and phenomenology, since the main purpose of xenology is to reveal the alienness problem; phenomenology, on the other hand, makes the alien phenomenon visible. Waldenfels' approach to the phenomenology of alienness is based on alien experience and alien understanding, thereby establishing the degrees of alienness. When Waldenfels' approach is applied in translation studies, it offers translators a way to recognize foreign phenomena more easily in the source text and classify them according to their degree. Therefore, this study couples Katharina Reiss' text type model with Bernhard Waldenfels' work on degrees of alienness and provides a new perspective on Reiss' approach. In this context, Waldenfels' approach, when applied to the field of translation, can help to differentiate foreign phenomena according to their degree. Together with Reiss's text typology, translators can use the determination of their text type to identify what kind of alienness they may be dealing with and to review their translation decisions. Since every determination makes alienness visible in a sense, it can be said that this visibility can also be effective in the translation process, because depending on the text type and the translator's scope, the visibility of the alien in the target text can vary.

  • On the Historical Development of the Terms of Translation Studies From the
           Perspective of Deconstruction Theory

    • Authors: Emra BÜYÜKNİSAN
      Abstract: The theory of deconstruction of Jacques Derrida stands against the universality of lingual meaning structures and points to the relevance of time, place and subject especially in the context of written communication. Terminology researches, however, claim that the conceptual definition of terms must be as precise as possible so that technical communication can proceed as clearly as possible. In translation studies, on the other hand, in the context of theoretical research, besides the requirement for a standardized definition of terms, there is also criticism about the variety of the definitions of one and the same term. This work aims to present a new perspective to the approach of definitions of terminology in translation studies. In this context, the historical development of the conceptual content of the terms equivalence, translation and translator is investigated on the basis of the theoretical perspective of deconstruction in relation to paradigm changes within translation studies.

  • The Importance of Mobile Applications for German as a Foreign Language -
           Displayed in Mobile App Examples “Anton” and “Fun Easy Learn”

    • Authors: Emel ERİM; Şengül SARI BIYIK
      Abstract: In today's digital age, technology is irreplaceable in all aspects of life. The teaching of a foreign language is also gradually benefiting from digital media. This study relates to the needs of technology for teaching German as a foreign language to children and young people. E-learning and m-learning are important terms of the modern age and there are many mobile applications nowadays that enable language learning independent of time and place. This study attempts to determine the extent to which language learning apps are sufficient to learn a foreign language with all four skills (listening, reading, writing, speaking) and the extent to which a foreign language can be acquired without systematic grammar and vocabulary training from a teacher. This study aims to provide an insight into this by comparing two different applications, “Anton” and “Fun Easy Learn”. In order to determine the significance of these applications for German as a foreign language, qualitative research is carried out and the catalogue of criteria by Rösler et.al.(2002) for Internet learning material is taken into consideration, whereby not only the technical aspects are examined more closely, but also the language skills such as listening, listening-seeing, reading, writing, speaking and the learning areas such as regional studies, grammar, vocabulary, tests, games and pronunciation.

  • Reading aloud as an impulse to promote reading in language and cultural
           education

    • Authors: Seval KARACABEY
      Abstract: Foreign language literature still implies great reservations among learners, even at an advanced stage. In the interests of linguistic and cultural education, reading in the original language should by no means be dispensed with. In particular, in the German cultural area, reading aloud is used as a basis for developing reading motivation and reading socialization. Reading aloud contributes in a special way to education, language development and the acquisition of communication and expression skills. The reading process can support access to literature and promote it in different educational phases. Studies have shown that reading aloud can have positive effects on reading motivation and, subsequently, on reading skills. Essential here are, among other things, the knowledge of the teacher about the different reading phases and the choice of text. This article deals with the relevance of reading in promoting reading in DaF/ DaZ, thus in linguistic and cultural education. In this context, the starting point is a look at the reading aloud tradition in Turkish and German society in order to point out the different developments in the reading culture. In this sense, the focus is on the question: How can literacy be used in foreign language teaching to support the learning of a language' Building on this, the experiences of teachers and empirical results on reading aloud in German society are discussed and explained and some concepts are presented. Based on this, considerations and possibilities for practice, as well as concrete tips on how to implement them in DaF/ DaZ, are discussed using the example of Uwe Timm's children's novel „Die Zugmaus“. In this novel, a mouse takes the reader on a journey through different countries. This makes the book varied and exciting at the same time and particularly suitable for reading aloud. This can be seen as a sign that reading aloud as a reading promotion measure can also be fun for adolescents and young adults during their studies.

This unexpected situation has brought along many problems in teaching German, as well as, in many teaching areas in the education process. In this context, the aim of this study is to research the effects of distance education on German education depending on the pandemic process, under eight themes, including general views on the Covid-19 pandemic process and restrictions, positive and negative opinions about distance education, technological equipment, teaching activities, material dimension, interaction, measurement and evaluation dimension, suggestions for the educational process. In order to achieve this aim, the phenomenology method was used within the scope of the qualitative research design. The research group of the study consists of students studying at Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University, Faculty of Education, German Language Teaching Undergraduate Program. Semi-structured interview, which is one of the data collection techniques, was preferred in order to determine the views of German teacher candidates on distance education. All data of the research consists of data obtained from interviews made via videoconference in the online environment. Descriptive analysis was used to analyze the data obtained by the interview technique. As a result of the research, it has been concluded that the negative effects of distance education on daily life and education life are more in general. According to the results, it is understood that the field courses in the German teaching program are not suitable for distance education, and the distance education method is not sufficient to develop four basic language skills; however, the distance education process slightly improved the receptive skills; it did not develop productive skills.

As a result, the research investigates the problem of whether German training learners can promote their writing process through individual writing counselling, which are carried out according to a model that the researcher designed independently. The data collections for the implementation are two-part, quantitative and qualitative. The results of the research show that has been benefited from the LLC and that blockages and deficits in German writing are eliminated. In this further contribution, the research process and the results are presented in a representative manner using a case study.

           Doris Dörrie

    • Authors: Tijen KÖŞETAŞ
      Abstract: Disgust is classified as one of the basic emotions, along with joy, happiness, jealousy and dread. There are many definitions of disgust. However, it is basically considered to be a strong response, towards something that is felt to be unpleasant. Although it is considered to be one of the basic emotions, not many literary works or movies choose to put this dark emotion at the center of their plot. In that regard, is the story Mit Messer und Gabel one of the very few literary works that basically deals with disgust on many different levels.This paper specifically concentrates on the causes and the consequences of disgust in the story Mit Messer und Gabel. Furthermore, it aims to answer the following questions: How is disgust being depicted by the Author Doris Dörrie' How does the Protagonist try to fight this emotion and what other emotions are being evoked due to disgust'The method applied in this paper is based upon the thoughts of the phenomenologist Aurel Kolnai. In his work Ekel, Hochmut, Haß. Zur Phänomenologie feindlicher Gefühle, deals Kolnai exclusively with disgust as a basic emotion and compares it with other hostile feelings.

  • Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s Der Schwierige and “a Brechtian Maxim: Don’t
           Start From the Good Old Things But the Bad New Ones”

    • Authors: Pınar AKKOÇ BAYIR
      Abstract: Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s Der Schwierige reflects the situation that runs parallel to the decline of the Habsburg Monarchy. At the same time, the comedy ironizes a society which is shaped by the crises of the modernity and of which the previously existing form is more and more dissolving. The present study aims to show that Hofmannsthal’s play Der Schwierige refers to old social norms and values during a social crisis period and that this reference represents a nostalgic attitude. In the sense of a cultural restoration, Der Schwierige represents a glossing over of traditional ways of life, which stands in contrast to the uncertainty of the now.

  • Jewish-European Culture of Remembrance in The Age of Cultural Change

    • Authors: Habib TEKİN
      Abstract: In the 21st century, the media, especially social media and their influence on children and young people, are increasingly at the center of social life. Social media is (eo ipso) assigned an important function in the formation of individual opinions as well as the allocation of social roles. In the context of the present paper, on the basis of the theoretical approach of medialization, social change should be presented against the background of media omnipresence. The attempt is made to create a (social) media corpus of the Jewish-European culture of remembrance. The envisioned corpus consists of the ARD and ZDF media library. The future podcast of the Tagesschau mal angenommen. Keine Zeitzeugen mehr' Was dann' is presented. The given corpora are also to be understood as a form of witnessed reporting that is intended to keep the memory of the Holocaust and the atrocities alive in the future. In addition to (German-) Jewish studies, German-Jewish literature and the scientific researches of that topic, media recordings in the form of video or audio material can be assigned great importance. In the hope that history does not repeat itself, media corpora take on an important function in maintaining the memory of the atrocities of the Nazi regime and keeping alive the collective memory of the Jewish-European culture. Thus, media corpora in the form of witnessed reporting can stimulate active engagement in the act of remembering and raise social awareness of possible future crimes.The aim of the article is therefore to outline the emergence, creation and function of a possible (social) media corpus of the Jewish-European culture of remembrance. In addition, informative discourse opportunities and further suggestions for the implementation of a digitized culture of remembrance in schools and other educational institutions are given.

  • Unreliable Narration as Proof of Authenticity in an Incomprehensible
           World: Observations on Shida Bazyar's Drei Kameradinnen

    • Authors: Eva RASCHKE
      Abstract: This article aims to demonstrate that the narrative unreliability in Shida Bazyar's Drei Kameradinnen. It keeps an eye in the 21st century in Central Europe discursively and formulats incomprehensibility of the world and the self, a mistrust of objectivity, of the ability to objectify and to communicate the own point of view.The leading thesis is that fantastic digressions, self-corrections, gaps, the simultaneity of several truths, references to reality and their refraction, as well as breaks in fiction, refer more solidly to a reality that is considered incomprehensible than a closed novel plot could have achieved.

  • Challenging Hegemonic Masculinity In Digitalized Tales Specific To The
           Frog Prince

    • Authors: Özlem AGVAN
      Abstract: Tales that start with the nursery rhyme “Once upon a time” and take the reader into the world of “pre-agreed possibilities” through a “logic within itself” as Pertev Naili Boratav puts is a literary genre that has transformed its imaginary universe to the digital with its historical background dates back more than 200 hundred years. Due to the structure having been established in the context of space-lessness and time-lessness, the tales that have the opportunity to establish another universe in its digital transformation have also caused the pain of overturning the order established by hegemony. In this context, there is the destruction of hegemonic masculinity in the Frog Prince (2020) tale written by Fadime Uslu, who built a new language with many princess protagonists added to the traditional Frog Prince (1812) tale written by the Grimm Brothers. The anti-tale Frog Prince, which deals with the field of desire expressed in traditional fairy tales with deconstructive analysis and carries it to the digital platform; has been the focus of this article in order to reveal the disenchantment of anti-tales, which emerged as a stance against traditional tales. In the article and in the case of the Frog Prince, fairy tales as the site of constructing a social heteronormative structure and producing its representations, is discussed through the discourse of “hegemonic masculinity” that R.W. Connell conceptualized out of Gramsci. Against the masculinity discourse of traditional tales, in which the seeds of gender discord are planted through the unconscious shaping of language; anti-tales that produce new discourses have been examined through the Frog Prince model and not only through the films produced by Disney, but from TV series to commercials; the restructuring of the stereotype, which it has built and maintained in many cultural areas from plays to songs, has been analyzed with the language of “another world is possible”.

  • Akif Pirinçci „Yin“ – Gender studies or grotesque
           Dystopie

    • Authors: Gülrû BAYRAKTAR
      Abstract: Akif Pirinçci is one of the most discussed authors in recent German literature. This is not only due to his work as a writer, but also to his provocative statements. More than often his name appears in press reports related to misogyny or even racism. These slogans also run through his novels. This in turn raises the question of whether Akif Pirinçci tries to suggest gender-specific, negative ideologies in his works. The novel "Yin" represents a new world order in which there are no more men and women are left to fend for themselves. The way in which the topic is dealt with by Pirinçci is sometimes so grotesque that the author's intention can be irritating to the reader. This work inherently analyses the novel “Yin” by Akif Pirinçci with regard to the question of whether the author tries to contribute to gender studies with the novel or whether it is a pure dystopia.
