Abstract:

Modernity, Purity and Sexuality in the non-western world: Dynamics of Sexuality in the Global Age
Dilek Cindoglu, Ph.D.
Bilkent University, Ankara
cindoglu@bilkent.edu.tr
This paper discusses some to the ways in which the sexual culture is being produced in contemporary Turkish society particularly regarding women’s bodies. When we consider sexuality within the global context; the world is becoming a global village in many ways the life in that village is very offensive for women. The rise of ethnic identities and the tensions to guard these identities creates such an anxiety over women’s purity and virginity. While the world becoming a global village; when local meets with the global, there occur unexpected tensions, mostly unfavorable for women. My research findings have the potential to challenge the monolithical approaches to sexuality. It will open new avenues to the research on sexuality and the meaning of sexual purity of women in different societies and/or strata.
