  • FIRST CINEMA MACHINES AND FILM PROJECTIONIST IN TURKISH CINEMA (1896-1908)

    • Authors: Ferhat ZENGİN
      Abstract: The earlier Turkish cinema history research focuses on the first screening venues and movies yet these studies do not focus on the movie machines and machine operators which are the key technologies of the cinema. To fill this gap, this study investigates the first cinema devices and movie machine operators in Turkish cinema. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to chronologically determine the first models and ownership structures of cinema devices used in Turkey that reflect the science and technology of that period as an important invention and identify the users of these devices. This study is limited between 1896-1908 and a literature review and document analysis are conducted. In the light of these documents, movie machines used during the first period of Turkish cinema history and the first movie machine operators are identified and chronologically listed.

  • The Collective Sectoral Multipliers of the European Union

    • Authors: Abdullah TOPCUOĞLU; Emre ERGİN
      Abstract: In this study, the sectors that would be central in terms of Output, Employment and Income Multipliers in the case where European Union is understood as a unified entity are found. As it has the most up-to-date data of all EU countries, 2014 Input-Output tables from the World Input Output Database (WIOD) are used. In this context, the input-output tables from each of the EU countries are aggregated in order to analyze the EU as a single country. 29 input-output tables, the cumulative input-output table obtained as a result of this aggregation plus the individual input-output tables from each of the 28 individual countries are analyzed separately, then the results are compared with each other. Thus, both the differences and the similarities between the individual member states and the collective EU economy are determined according to the multiplier analyses.

  • THE EFFECT OF SOCIAL PROTECTION BENEFITS ON POVERTY IN TURKEY AND EU
           COUNTRIES: A PANEL DATA ANALYSIS

    • Authors: Eyüp AKBULUT; Mehmet Emin ALTUNDEMİR, Murat GÜVEN
      Abstract: The aim of the study is to examine the effect of social protection benefits on poverty in Turkey and EU countries using the panel data analysis. In this context, the effect of family, health, retirement and unemployment benefits of 27 EU countries and Turkey between the years of 2007 and 2018. Fort his purpose, we use Driscoll-Kraay estimator to investigate the determinants of median poverty rates of 50% and 70% in these countries. We find that family and health benefits have a negative and statistically significant effect on the median poverty rate of 50% and 70%. However, retirement (old age, widow/orphan and disabled) benefits have a positive and statistically significant effect on the poverty rate of median 50% and 70%. We also find that unemployment benefits have not statistically significant effect on the median 50% poverty rate while they have a positive and statistically significant effect over the median 70%.

  • A FIELD STUDY ON THE DETERMINANTS OF YOUNG CONSUMERS' USE OF
           ELECTRONIC PAYMENT METHODS

    • Authors: Helin TOMBAŞ; Asiye Ayben ÇELİK
      Abstract: The fact that consumption practices are shifting to online platforms with an increasing momentum causes businesses to focus on the goal of providing consumers positive experience when shopping from these platforms. In the design of the service offered to the consumer, the correct management of the payment processes, which is the key point of purchasing, is important. In this context, the trust and security perception of the consumer regarding the electronic payment methods offered to the consumer will be decisive in ending the shopping with the purchase. In the study, a conceptual model is presented in which the characteristics of e-payment methods are questioned and their relationship with perceived trust and security, and the relationship between perceived trust and security and the use of electronic payment methods is examined. The data collected by questionnaire from 503 university students were analyzed by structural equation modeling. The findings show that security notifications and transaction procedures for payment methods have a positive relationship with perceived trust and security, and that perceived trust and security are determinants of the use of electronic payment methods.

  • ADAPTATION OF THE INSTRUMENTAL CLIMATE SCALE INTO TURKISH WITH
           CONFIRMATORY FACTOR ANALYSIS

    • Authors: Osman Seray ÖZKAN; Burcu ÜZÜM
      Abstract: The climate of instrumentality is an individual behavior in which the employee who has economic concerns acts with the view of “self-serving”. There are various studies in which the instrumentality climate scale is used. However, it was observed that the number of items in the scale and the expressions representing the items used in these studies were different, and the implicit structure of the scale was not confirmed. Therefore, the need to measure the relevant phenomenon more accurately has emerged. Accordingly, the aim of the research is to adapt the Instrumentality Climate Scale (Victor & Cullen, 1988) to Turkish by ensuring its validity and reliability. In this context, 203 employees based in Kocaeli participated in the research, and as a result of the factor analysis, a measurement tool consisting of seven items and a single factor and explaining 82.5% of the total variance was adapted. As a result of confirmatory factor analysis, it was revealed that the model showing six items and a single factor had good fit index values (x²/df=1.80; RMSEA=.06; GFI=.97; CFI=.99; SRMR=.01). In addition, it was determined that the scale provided convergent and divergent validity. As a result, it can be stated that the scale adapted to Turkish is a reliable and valid measurement tool.

  • THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CURRENT ACCOUNT BALANCE AND ECONOMIC GROWTH: THE
           CASE OF TURKEY

    • Authors: Hakkı Kutay BOLKOL; Fatih TÜRKÖNDER
      Abstract: The main goal of this study is to investigate the relationship between current account balance and economic growth in Turkey by using quarterly data for the period between 2003 and 2019. ARDL approach was applied in the study. The current account balance was converted into Turkish Lira and then adjusted for inflation effect by using the CPI. The results provide strong evidence that there is a significant, bidirectional negative relationship between real GDP growth and the current account balance both in the short run and in the long run. In short, a positive change in one variable has a negative effect on the other variable. In order to cope with this deadlock, focus sectors that attracts side industry and produce advanced technology and value added should be subsidized by government.

  • THAT IS THE QUESTION IN TURKISH POLITICAL CULTURE:

    • Authors: Halil KANADIKIRIK
      Abstract: Studies on Turkish political culture often emphasize the tension between an authoritarian political center and a weak periphery against it. Even if this approach is correct to some extent, it remains incomplete in evaluating the attitude of the later towards the center. In this study, it is aimed to define a common political culture area shared by both political center and periphery elements. For this, first of all the political modernization process of the center in Turkey and then how the periphery adapted itself to the aforementioned change have been examined. Despite the disposition of central political elite in Turkey toward the top-down and authoritarian policies during the modernization process, it is seen that those outside the center hadn’t have any intention to build a civilian area ever. Despite all radical transformations, the social perception towards the state finds its expression in the effort to be a part of the functioning of the same state with the same instruments.

  • The Impact of Credit Debtness on Life Satisfaction: An Analysis on Turkey

    • Authors: Begüm ÇIĞŞAR; Deniz ÜNAL, Semra BOĞA
      Abstract: This study aims to determine the factors affecting life satisfaction in Turkey. The life satisfaction scale of Diener et al. (1985) was used (N=557) in the study. In addition to traditional determinants of life satisfaction such as income, gender, marital status, age, education level, credit debt variable was included in the survey questions. The results of the analysis showed that working status, higher education level, high income level, and the possibility of making savings increase life satisfaction. On the other hand, no significant difference was found among the respondents in terms of life satisfaction by gender, marital status, child ownership, age, and the region of residence. Ordinal logistic regression analysis applied to individuals with credit debt also revealed the credit indebtedness as an important determinant of life satisfaction in Turkey.

  • THE EFFECT OF PROFESSIONAL BURNOUT LEVELS OF HEALTH SECTOR WORKERS ON
           EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE DURING THE PANDEMIC PERIOD

    • Authors: Gözde MERT; Aysun ÖZTEKİN
      Abstract: The health sector is a labor-intensive sector that is affected by technological developments. It can be stated that the health sector, when compared to other sectors, is under intense time pressure and employees have to work within low error tolerances. Especially during the pandemic period, the heavy workload of healthcare professionals, the fact that they had to work under many risks, such as getting sick and being a source of infection to family members, created negativity in the levels of professional burnout, and it was difficult for employees to manage their own emotions and thoughts. The aim of this study is to determine the occupational burnout and emotional intelligence levels of health workers during the pandemic period, and to examine the relationship between them. For this purpose, correlation and regression analyzes were applied to determine the cause-effect relationship between the variables. Accordingly, it was determined that there is a significant and negative relationship between occupational burnout and emotional intelligence in healthcare workers.

  • THE EFFECTS OF GENDER FACTOR ON TIME USE IN THE PROCESS OF DISTANCE
           EDUCATION (THE CASE OF SOCIOLOGY STUDENTS)

    • Authors: Figen KANBİR
      Abstract: The pandemic process has made inequalities evident in the field of education, as in many other fields. The gender factor has created an important dimension of inequality in education. During the pandemic process, education and daily life activities were carried out in-home or family life for approximately one and a half years. In the study, besides the problems experienced by the students in participating in online education during the pandemic process, the gender roles they undertake in their family structures and their future expectations were opened to question. While doing this, the study started from Pierre Bourdieu's concept of economic capital. The study was carried out with a semi-structured interview, one of the qualitative research techniques. The participants of the study were determined from Siirt University Sociology Department students through purposeful sampling. The study was carried out in the hybrid education process after a break of about one and a half years due to the pandemic. According to the results of the study, the increase or decrease in the economic capital of the students determines the responsibilities of the students in and out of the home. Throughout the distance education process, families expected both male and female students (depending on being older in the family) to adopt traditional gender roles. Male students work in a job that will generate income for the family; female students mostly have responsibilities arising from other members of the family, cleaning the house, preparing the meal, hosting the guest(s), and maintaining their livelihood activities. From these results, it can be said that both male and female students are at a disadvantage in terms of the problems created by distance education.

    • Authors: Serkan UNAL; Mehmet Ali GÜLEÇ
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to examine the long-run relationship between research & development (R & D) , innovation and economic growth in Turkey and 15 EU countries. In this study, per capita R & D expenditures, number of patents and GDP per capita are used as measures of R & D, innovation and growth respectively. The relationship between these variables is analyzed by applying General Method of Moments (GMM) approach which is developed by Arellano and Bond (1991). As a result of the analysis, lagged value of the dependent variable and R & D expenditures are detected as significant at 1 % significance level while number of patents is detected as significant at 10 % significance level. A 10 % increase in R & D expenditures leads to a 3.27 % increase in GDP per capita while a % 10 increase in number of patents brings about a 0.77 % increase in GDP per capita. Consequently, we can reliably state that there exist positive and significant relationships from R & D expenditures and number of patents to economic growth.

Content analysis, word cloud and phenomenological methods were applied to the obtained data. As a result, it has been determined that the owners and partners of family hotel businesses have insufficient sectoral knowledge and do not fully trust the managers. In addition, due to the understanding that I know the best, it has been determined that the equivalence of authority and responsibility in family hotel businesses is very insufficient. It has been determined that the lack of equality of authority and responsibility is the biggest obstacle to the institutionalization of the enterprise, and this situation negatively affects the performance of both managers and employees and leads the enterprise to failure.

    • Authors: Cemalettin Öcal FİDANBOY
      Abstract: Using up-to-date technology has become an indispensable element for all individuals to maintain daily life. It is a well-known fact that employees and retirees over a certain age in business life experience significant difficulties in adapting to new technologies. The starting point of the research is to empirically determine the relationship between innovativeness and self-leadership strategies that can be developed by an elderly employee or retiree using current technologies. These strategies consist of cognitive strategies that the individual can affect himself/herself in a positive way. It is thought that self-leadership strategies that can be developed by middle-aged and elderly individuals can be associated with innovation and that individuals who can strengthen their innovativeness by using these strategies can contribute to the successful aging process. In the study, a survey was conducted with 167 individuals over a certain age using convenience sampling method. Hypotheses were analyzed, confirmatory factor analyzes were performed, and relationships were tested. The findings showed that there are relationships between the self-leadership and innovativeness behaviors of older individuals.

  • THE CONCEPT OF MIND IN THE PHILOSOPHY OF MIND: A HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE
           FROM ANCIENT GREEK TO THE CONCEPT OF MIND

    • Authors: Abdurrazak GÜLTEKİN
      Abstract: In this article, the transformation of the concept of soul, which was used to express mind and consciousness in Ancient Greece, to the concept of mind in contemporary philosophy of mind will be explained historically. The concept of soul in antiquity and medieval times, human actions expressed by the activity of the soul, evolved into the mind and cognitive processes of the mind in the modern and contemporary period. In our article, the ontological and epistemological reasons affecting this conceptual change will be evaluated in general terms. It will be stated that philosophy of mind is seen as a very difficult field in terms of its subject. It is known that the mind-body problem, which started to be dealt with within the boundaries of the philosophy of mind with Descartes, was considered as the soul-body problem in Ancient Greece and the Middle Ages. In this period, thought activity is attributed to the concept of soul. However, when the philosophy of mind started to be considered as an independent field in the philosophical discussions of the modern period, the mental functions of the soul were evaluated with the concept of mind. In our study, this subject will be explained descriptively.
