Identity Politics Inside Out

National Identity Contestation and Foreign Policy in Turkey

Lisel Hintz

  • Develops a theory of inside-out identity contestation that closes the identity-foreign policy circle
  • Based on 18 months of fieldwork in Turkey using Turkish sources accessed from social and news media, interviews, surveys, and archival research conducted by the author
  • Draws heavily on popular culture sources such as novels, televisions shows, and films to extract debates about identity otherwise inaccessible to the researcher
