The article relates the findings of an ongoing research project that encompasses severa decades of AVT in Turkey. Drawing a matrix of relations and interactions between types of AVT (i.e. Subtitling, dubbing, remakes, adaptations) and practices (i.e. Censoring, choice of AV products) and the political as well as social realities and aspirations of certain periods, the aim is to provide a historical trajectory of AVT to exemplify the specific use of certain types of AVT in line with societal and politica aspirations and developments. Limited by the length of an article and the inability to provide AV material in printed format, the article provides an overview of the major eras of AVT and the politica and societal shifts that necessitated or brought about changes to the AVT scene in the decades studied.
