World Science Café, 20.06.2018 - Neoliberal Regimes and Their Gendered Body-Bio-Politics: The Case of AKP in Turkey

Yarar, Betül; ZAK | Zentrum für Angewandte Kulturwissenschaft und Studium Generale [Hrsg.]


In her lecture, the Turkish sociologist Prof. Dr. Betül Yarar discuss how the female body and female sexuality are exploited in contemporary Turkish politics to strengthen neoliberal and neoconservative trends. She analyses the phenomenon alongside the observation that on one hand, the regime increases homogenisation tendencies and tries to ensure control over the female body, while on the other hand, a large part of the success of this politics is owed to its extraordinary appeal to female voters.

The World Science Café is hosted by Prof. Dr. Caroline Y. Robertson-von Trotha in cooperation with the International Scholars & Welcome Office (IScO) on Karlsruher Institute of Technology. More Information:
