  • SWIPE ME IF YOU CAN: CULTURAL AND GENDERED USES OF TINDER IN TURKEY

    • Authors: Gözde CÖBEK; Murat ERGİN
      Abstract: Dating apps have become a worldwide trend since Tinder. The predominantly An-glo-American literature generally pays less attention to how they are used in and affected by different cultural contexts. Based on an online survey (N=915), this study explores Tinderers’ motivations, swiping strategies, and the context of using Tinder in Turkey in relation to gender. First, the paper finds that although Tinderers mostly use the app for casual sex, socialization and entertainment emerged as other popular motivations. Second, we find some support for the “status vs. beauty” ste-reotype though physical appearance is also the top criterion for women. Lastly, un-like the Anglo-American contexts, we find that the social stigma around Tinder in Turkey is more likely to affect women who limit their use to contexts that they as-sociate with privacy. Defining Tinder as an algorithmic cultural object, this paper highlights how technology and culture are intertwined in a relation of co-production.

  • CONCEPT-FUNCTION HARMONY IN RE-DESIGNED BUILDINGS: ADAPTATION OF
           HISTORICAL BUILDINGS AND GALLERY SPACE

    • Authors: Cansın İlayda ÇETİN
      Abstract: Historical areas should be protected as a part of cultural heritage, buildings should be kept alive by preserving their original textures and transferred to future generations. Since reuse is considered an integral part of conservation, it is very important to preserve the social and cultural characteristics of the building. Indicators; It is a communication tool that technology provides us. The new function given to the buildings in order to preserve and keep alive the vitality of the historical buildings is generally the space that provides an environment for mutual communication between individuals. It is important to reshape the building in a way that preserves its traditional position, composition and balance without disturbing its connection with the environment. However, while doing this, the harmony of the new concept and the building may not overlap. The incompatibility of some unchangeable equipment of the historical building or the materials belonging to the period and today's contemporary preferences can create a handicap. In this research, two sample buildings are used to test how modern and dynamic display concepts can be combined with historical buildings. For this reason, the Tate Modern and Orsay Museum examples were chosen because they are similar in scale and have been recently renovated.

  • INDIA-CHINA BROADER FLARE-UP: A CHALLENGE TO IRAN

    • Authors: Mukhtar Ahmad BHAT
      Abstract: In the new phase of global re-alignment, the two largest South Asia countries, China and India are at large heads with each other because of changing geo-political arrangements and recent border clashes. The current border crisis is the worst situation and highest escalation between the two countries after the 1962 war. Although in past the border forces of the countries have clashed with each other but those clashes never resulted in killing of soldiers and change in status quo of the border. However, the recent clashes between the forces have resulted in everything that did not happened in past, not only left twenty Indian soldiers died, more than fifty were injured and imprisonment of ten Indian soldiers but it also changed the status quo of the de facto border namely the ‘Line of Actual Control’ by capturing 40 square miles by China of the territory claimed by India, development of infrastructure in shape of construction of roads and permanent bankers in the territory which was regarded as buffer zone as well as unprece-dented increase in the number of troops along weapons and artillery on both the sides. India and China border dispute involves about 13,500 square miles on In-dia’s Northern side along the Ladakh and 35,000 square miles on India’s Eas-tern side along the state of Arunachal Pradesh (Shukla, 2020). Since the 1962 war between India and China, both the countries managed their border disputes very well, therefore the question arises why it happened now' And what kind of challenge it is posing to the future of decades old Iran-India relations. Here an attempt has been made to analyse the regional and global events that has resulted in the border clashes and crisis in the China-India relationship.

  • D-8 ORGANIZATION FOR ECONOMIC COOPERATION AND TURKEY WITHIN THE SCOPE OF
           INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL RELATIONS

    • Authors: Hasan ACAR; Yunus KARAAĞAÇ
      Abstract: Along with the phenomenon of globalization, the international system has emer-ged from the hegemony of unitary nation-states and has taken on multiple struc-tures including multinational companies and regional-international organizations. The end of the Cold War period has allowed the ideological and single-centered foreign policy moves to progress pragmatically. Developing 8 (D-8), which is an example of non-Western based international organizations, is an Istanbul-based organization that has no particular political domination and covers more developing countries and prioritizes peace and justice. D-8 is a global structure in terms of geographical area as well as its basic principles and purposes, where the parameters such as population, economic potential, geopolitical location bring a great advantage. However, it is evaluated that it does not reach a suffici-ent level in terms of attracting its advantages to practice. This study was prepared to analyze the place of D-8 organization in the international political relations dimension, to examine its current potential.

  • THE ‘COLOUR’ OF IMMIGRANT LITERATURE IN THE SELECTED FICTION OF
           AFRICAN AMERICAN AND WHITE AMERICAN WRITERS

    • Authors: Mine SEVİNC
      Abstract: Paris is a metropolitan city with its urban characteristics that have been shaped by its artistic monuments and history. There was a wave of immigration by white Americans to Paris at the beginning of the twentieth century. This wave of immi-grants included several artists, journalists, and writers, who were disillusioned by the promises of the New World, America. These were as Gertrude Stein’s described created a ‘lost generation’ in Europe. At the second half of the twentieth century, there appeared another wave of immigration to Europe, this time mainly by Afri-can-Americans. Their experiences and conditions differed from that of white pio-neers. They were more liberal and stood for freedom rather than getting lost in Par-is. Their previous situation in America was one of restlessness; they had to run away from hatred levelled against their skin colour or sexuality. They pointed to social problems back in America and pronounced the freedom of speech they earned Paris. This article aims to explore the extent to which the African-American literary experience of Paris after World War II differed from that of white American writers earlier in the century. The paper critically compares the selected fiction by accomplished authors such as Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises (1926), F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘Babylon Revisited’ (1931), Richard Wright’s The Outsider (1953) and James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room (1956). This article concludes that the two literary experience that were shaped in Paris vigorously differed in their motives and motivations in reflecting the expectations of exile, the experience of sexuality and the treatment of women.

  • CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AS A STRATEGIC TOOL TO EFFICIENT WATER SUPPLY CHAINS:
           A CASE OF MABVUKU-TAFARA SUBURBS OF HARARE, ZIMBABWE

    • Authors: Charles MAZHAZHATE; R. M. RUSİKE, D. MARAVANYİKA, Panganayi JERE
      Abstract: Lack of Corporate Governance in Water Supply Chain Management affect service delivery leading to sluggish societal development. Water crisis has contributed much to marginalization of the vulnerable in society and outbreak of healthy chal-lenges such as waterborne diseases. Exploitable water sources, if properly exploit-ed, lead to adequate water supplies for domestic consumption. The purpose of this exploratory case study was to explore if the respondents felt Corporate Governance tenets were in use and how these could embedded in the management culture to en-sure seamless water supply provision. A sample size of 98, randomly selected from a targeted population of 400 subjects for representativeness from Mabvuku-Tafara Suburbs of Harare. Ninety-three questionnaires were randomly distributed and 62 responses retrieved. Researchers used a snowball-sampling technique to identify interviewees for the study. SPSS was used for data analysis and Atlasti.9 software. The study found out that water crisis was still a perennial issue. Households relied on unprotected water sources. A few respondents sourced water from private com-panies into the business of bottled water. Women and young girls were sexually abused they queued for water deep into the night. The study recommends adoption of corporate governance principles in water supply chain management to meet in-ternational best practices in water provision for the good of all citizens. Revamping the existing water infrastructure, use of e-procurement systems to eliminate unethi-cal practices in the buying of chemicals to purify water and promotion of a culture of tolerance were some strategies that could enhance service delivery.

  • EXAMINATION OF THE MODERNIST CITY-NATURE RELATIONSHIP AS A STRATEGY FOR
           DETERMINING SOCIAL BEHAVIORS: SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES

    • Authors: İbrahim EROL; Uğur ÖZCAN
      Abstract: Cities faced with a spatial stratification due to economic reasons and environmental problems that threaten public health, especially in the beginning of the 20th century, with the effect of industrialization. In this process, rural areas which are far from industrial areas have become settlements that can benefit from the opportunities of nature but insufficient in terms of infrastructure and service compared to the city. Many pioneers in various disciplines have developed projects, proposals and utopias about solutions to these problems. In order to solve the problems in the cities, Ebenezer Howard put forward the idea of 'garden city' as a city-rural synthesis where the advantages of rural and urban life can be lived together. Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier have also developed their projects in which the relationship between the city and nature is at the forefront. Although the designs and proposals of Howard, Wright and Le Corbusier intersect in terms of the city-nature relationship, they have radical differences in terms of physical, sociological, cultural and political. This situation may be due to the ideological thoughts of the modernist pioneers or the way they interpret the city. In all three projects, there are many details in order to meet the physical, social, economic and cultural needs of the city. Considering the lifestyles that are desired to be created in cities, it can be said that each of them uses the city-nature relationship to implement their own ideas and ideologies. As it can be understood from the examined projects of Howard, Wright and Le Corbusier, urban planning can be used as a means of controlling the behavioral reflexes of the society, as well as being a physical landscaping element. In this sense, for Modernism, the city can become an expression of its power to shape social relations and create organizational behavior.

The study found out that violations of existing sourcing and procurement policies by the entity due to political interferences by bigwigs affected the entity’s reputation and financial growth. The study recommends migration into e-procurement platforms to reduce excessive human contact or interference in the procurement of goods and services.

  • INSTAGRAM SELFIE BEHAVIOR AS A FUNCTION OF PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS: A
           STUDY OF TURKISH EMERGING ADULTS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

    • Authors: Ryan Macey WİSE; Aylin KALKAN
      Abstract: The purpose of the current study was to investigate the relationship between personality characteristics and selfie behavior on Instagram among a sample of emerging adults in Turkey during the Covid-19 pandemic. Research has been mixed on how personality influences selfie taking and posting and demonstrates limited consideration of cultural variables, two problems we attempt to partly remedy in this study. Personality was measured using the Turkish version of the Big Five Inventory (B5KT-50-TR) and a series of questions was asked concerning frequency of selfie taking and sharing, the use of filtering and photo editing software, and the attention participants gave to monitoring followers’ ‘likes’ of their selfies. Results indicated that extraversion and openness to experience predicted the frequency of selfie sharing and monitoring of likes, while neuroticism predicted the use of filtering software. Results are contextualized within Turkish culture and related to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and its effects for young adults, including increased levels of loneliness.
