The History of New Media in Turkey: Radio, Television, and Mobile Devices

Project description

Media evolution in Turkey

The media in Turkey has significantly evolved since the advent of the radio in the 1920s. The radio was met with hostility by those who considered it a Western imperialist technology. No longer the case today, new digital media are largely welcomed by Turkey’s citizens. However, this transformation has received limited attention from media scientists. The EU-funded HNMT project will explore, for the first time, the changing relationship of technology to global, class and gender inequalities from the time of Turkey’s foundation to the current period. The project will analyse Turkey’s development from a nationalist and developmentalist economy to today’s neoliberal economic system by researching radio in the 1920s, television in the 1950s and mobile tools in the new millennium.
