Preprint | 2023 | Yeditepe University Academic and Open Access Information System

This study examines the news production processes about femicide, a universal problem, in the Turkish press within the context of collective memory. The relationship between memory and the news media is explained by associating it with Alison Landsberg's (2004) concept of prosthetic memory. In addition, to better analyze how collective memory is (re)produced through news about femicide, which is the main subject of the study, feminist movements and women's ideas and activities about the issue from the past to the present in the world and Turkey are discussed. The in-depth interview method, which is one of the qualitative research me . . .thods, has been used in the study. Female journalists working in different news media outlets were included as participants in the research and were asked questions about the relationship between news production processes, femicide, and collective memory Daha fazlası Daha az

Preprint | 2023 | Yeditepe University Academic and Open Access Information System

Media literacy refers to the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and create messages in a wide variety of media modes and formats. Even though the media is so globalized and easily accessible, it is necessary to correctly perceive and read the messages, make sense of them, analyze, evaluate, criticize, etc. Before accessing media literacy equipment, the individual is only in a passive position in front of the messages presented by the media. However, with the media literacy equipment, individuals take an active position that evaluates questions, analyzes the media messages, and keeps a distinction in the context of the criteria it . . . sets. It is important to examine media literacy level of university students who have a great role in shaping the future. The study aims to determine university students' media literacy levels, to compare the media literacy levels of university students who took and did not take a media literacy course and determine what socio-demographic factors affect media literacy. In this study, the "Media Literacy Level Determination Scale" developed by Karataş was used with his permission. The universe of the research consists of university students studying at Yeditepe University. The sample consists of 801 students. As a result of the research, the fact that taking a media literacy course increases the level of media literacy shows that there is a statistically significant difference between students who take this course and those who do not. Another result is that when the scores in the distribution of the students according to the classes are examined, it is concluded that the media literacy levels of the senior students are higher than the other classes. When sociodemographic characteristics are taken into account, no significant difference was found in media literacy in terms of gender, family structure and place of residence Daha fazlası Daha az

Absurdism in communication based on Albert Camus

Preprint | 2023 | Yeditepe University Academic and Open Access Information System

Albert Camus, one of the pioneers of existentialism and absurdism, identified the search for meaning in a meaningless universe as "absurd" by defining the limits of absurdism in his work The Myth of Sisyphus. According to him, a person knows that he will die while trying to add value to his life. This contradiction brings out the "absurd". Because death is a tragic end for Man. Another absurd work of Albert Camus, The Stranger is dominated by an incongruous sensibility. This novel of Camus, who argues that the world is absurd and meaningless, is considered one of the most important works of philosophy of the 20th century. The me . . .aninglessness of life, alienation from the environment and oneself, and indifference are at the forefront in the novel. Albert Camus, who has very influential works all over the world, knew today's people very well and expressed the problems of alienation and lack of communication in societies in a foresight way in 1942. In The Stranger, studies on absurd philosophy were carried out at the level of master's degree and doctorate, by considering other works of Camus. Some of these studies have dealt with Camus' philosophy of "absurd" by comparing existentialism, while others have touched on the concept of absurd in the context of the works. In my thesis titled “Absurdism in Communication Based on Albert Camus”, I focused on the alienation caused by absurdism by taking Albert Camus's novel The Stranger, which tells the story of absurdism, and examined the absurd communication and alienation of today's people by using In-depth Interview method, based on reasons such as socioeconomic, cultural and digitalization Daha fazlası Daha az

The role of news media in reproduction of urban space: Ideological presentation of news reports on Galataport Istanbul Project in Hürriyet and Sabah newspapers

Preprint | 2022 | Yeditepe University Academic and Open Access Information System

Media is shaping the consciousness, ideas, emotions and even daily lives of individuals by presenting a certain framework of meaning to the society. The individuals evaluate the social events and facts within the framework of meaning that is provided by the media. This study is defending the opinion that the content and discourse that is produced in the urban transformation news reports by the journalist, as the organic intellectual, is legitimizing the capital-oriented transformation of the city and the relations of production are reproduced. Starting from the presupposition that reality that is constructed in news which is produce . . .d along with certain hegemonic discourse has influences on the consciousness of the individuals, the study argues the news discourse is influential over the individuals in leading them to illusions by neglecting the social inequalities and contradictions, and by virtue of this, neoliberal hegemony can be reproduced. Accordingly, in the study, the role of the hegemonic discourses produced in the news in mainstream newspapers about the Galataport Istanbul Project, which is considered as the spatial reflection of neoliberal hegemony, in legitimizing the capital-oriented transformation of the city and in the production of social consent, is researched with a critical approach and Teun A. Van Dijk's critical discourse analysis method. As a result of the study, to be legitimized the space reproduced as a commodity, it has been observed the project is identified with a strong economy, development, well-being and welfare of the society in the news discourses. By developing a content and discourse that affirms such projects for a strong and developed, society has been encouraged to support neoliberal urban hegemony Daha fazlası Daha az
