dc.description.abstractAmerican popular culture is virtually everywhere including Turkey. Turkey is a close ally of the United States and American cultural products have long been present in Turkey. How does the presence of American popular culture in Turkey affect young people? Employing a series of focus groups comprised of Turkish university students we explored the meanings they attach to American popular culture and the place it has in their lives. What emerged was a portrait of Turkish young people constructing themselves and their imaginations from a multiplicity of traditions including American into an ever changing shifting whole. The Turkish young people in this study seem to exemplify this as they blend their lives not always easily or smoothly around Turkish American European and numerous other cultures. © W. S.
