Recent socio-political developments have rendered cultural studies of the Republic of Turkey an ever-widening field of study; as they lead apparently to a probable paradigm shift in a society that was once thought to be purely Westernoriented. The analysis of this transformation is before all else a cultural studies task. Accordingly; this paper has two aims: one; to make a a brief survey of cultural studies work that has been done so far in Turkey; and two; draw attention to the increasingly heterogeneous character of cultural studies in the country. Indeed; cultural studies in Turkey is marked by a phenomenon: there is a pronounced “divorce” between “Anglophone” Turkish scholars and “merely Turcophone” ones.
