Soundscapes der spätosmanischen Städte

Mein Projekt ist eine vergleichende Sozial- und Kulturgeschichte der Soundscapes der spätosmanischen Städte. Das Ziel ist es, die sensorischen und subjektiven Aspekte von Sounds zu konfigurieren. Ich beabsichtige, ein Bild davon zu geben, wie osmanische Soundscapes durch den allgegenwärtigen Klang des muslimischen Gebetsrufs geprägt wurden, aber auch bis zu einem gewissen Grad durch die Geräusche anderer Religionen, durch Straßenhändler, die das Straßenleben mit ihren kommerziellen Aktivitäten dominierten, durch Hunde, durch Feuer und Feuerwehrleute und natürlich durch die neuen Infrastruktur- und Kommunikationstechnologien von Eisenbahn, Straßenbahn, Telegraf und Dampfschiff um die Jahrhundertwende. Die Forschung erstreckt sich auch auf die Kritik und das Bewusstsein bestimmter Teile der Gesellschaft bezüglich Lärm und Anti-Lärm-Bestimmungen. Das Projekt interessiert sich besonders für die Implikationen von Geschlecht, Gesellschaftsschicht, Ethnizität, Religion und Mensch-Tier-Begegnungen bei der Gestaltung des sonischen Lebens in den Städten.

Virtual stories

The project aims to create new digital platforms of virtual arts for children & youth to be able to speak up and tell their own stories through novel and unorthodox mediums. The youth we are in contact with think that the virtual reality is the technology of the future, and are curious about new forms of storytelling that get them beyond the binaries of contemporary scientific thought and practice. The project also aims to create channels for Middle Eastern youth to engage with young people in Europe, and especially those in Berlin, through interregional connections built by the project partners.

Revolution is the Equality of Children and Adults”: Yaşar Kemal Interviews Street Children, 1975

International Journal of Middle East Studies
Edition: Cambridge University Press
Collection: International Journal of Middle East Studies

In 1975, the world-famous novelist Yaşar Kemal (1923–2015) undertook a series of journalistic interviews with street children in Istanbul. The series, entitled “Children Are Human” (Çocuklar İnsandır), reflects the author's rebellious attitude as well as the revolutionary spirit of hope in the 1970s in Turkey. Kemal's ethnographic fieldwork with street children criticized the demotion of children to a less-than-human status when present among adults. He approached children's rights from a human rights angle, stressing the humanity of children and that children's rights are human rights. The methodological contribution of this research to the history of children and youth is its engagement with ethnography as historical source. His research provided children the opportunity to express their political subjectivities and their understanding of the major political questions of the time, specifically those of social justice, (in)equality, poverty, and ethnic violence encountered in their everyday interactions with politics in the country. Yaşar Kemal's fieldwork notes and transcribed interviews also bring to light immense injustices within an intersectional framework of age, class, ethnicity, and gender. The author emphasizes that children's political agency and their political protest is deeply rooted in their subordination and misery, but also in their dreams and hopes. Situating Yaşar Kemal's “Children Are Human” in the context of the 1970s in Turkey, I hope to contribute to childhood studies with regard to the political agency of children as well as to the history of public intellectuals and newspapers in Turkey and to progressive representations of urban marginalization.
