Cultural Anthropology Special Focus on #OccupyGezi, also shows media related limitations of Turkish anthropologists…

Cultural Anthropology

Just heard that the latest issue of Cultural Anthropology has a special focus: Gezi Protests. That will definitely be a good scholarly and ethnographic source on the subject. But check out the contents below. Not one specific article you will find on new media usage, which was obviously an essential part of Protests. Unfortunately, (mass) media still not seen as a direct object of research in our otherwise well educated circle of anthropologists.  After some special and cordial requests, I have started to work on an ethnographic account of new media usage and citizen journalism networks during Gezi Protests. Hopefully I will submit my article on January, 2014 and will be available by May 2014 at latest…

Here is the material:
