Independent and cutting-edge analysis on global affairs

The author takes up two events, which seem to be practically absent in the minds of a large portion of Turkish society to analyz intentional or unintentional omissions in the construction of national identity. One of the case studies the author examines to shed light on the social memory in Turks is the tragic 6-7 September 1955 events when the Greek minority in Istanbul (The Rum’s) and their property was attacked. The other case study is on discourse following the disastrous sinking of a Turkish Submarine in April 1953.
