Sažetak predavanja:

Rising Populism and Women’s Rights in Turkey

This examination of women’s rights, state and nationalism in Turkey fits within both the broad academic discussion regarding women and right-wing nationalism and a consideration of today’s larger re-nationalization movement. Today, the growth of right-wing nationalist politics, invigorated by resentment of globalization and a subsequent tide of populism, has demonstrated the fragility of women’s progress as conservative groups have touted traditional values and gender roles. This trend toward re-nationalization has been seen in several countries, including Turkey, and though their individual contexts differ, the impact on women is often similar. Utilizing religion, culture, a fear of lost identity and privilege, and us vs. them rhetoric, these movements elevate dominant national groups while marginalizing women. What does this mean for women and women’s rights?  In this talk, I will aim for a larger discussion of this issue within the context of my own research.
