The construction of the republican discourse through interventions in public space
Item Usage Stats
This thesis is on the construction of the early republican discourse through the interventions in public space. These interventions are the construction of Ankara as the national center and the two monuments, The Victory Monument in Ulus and the Güven Monument in Kızılay, located at the center of the nation. Through the analysis of these two monuments it is argued that the construction of monuments is a way of producing and communicating the symbols of the basic premises of the Republican discourse and therefore it contributes to the reproduction of the discourse, to the process of the construction of the nation and the self-construction of the state.
