Summary:
This collection consists of 29 documents, all in English, and is rich in community studies which were carried out between 1932 and 1961. Four of the communities were in the central region of Anatolia and include Nürgüz (Makal 1954), Demirciler (Pierce 1964), Hasanoğlan (Yasa 1957), and Sakaltutan (Stirling 1965). Community studies in other regions include Susurluk in northwestern Turkey (Magnarella 1974), Ulu in the southwest (Benedict 1974), and Çukurova in the northeast (Kıray 1968; 1981). Also included are six studies on different aspects of local government (Aktan 1955; Hanson 1955; Mansur 1955; Özyürük 1955; and Yasa 1955). More specific studies focus on agricultural practices (Helburn 1955), folktales (Barnham), land use (Morrison 1939), personal names (Spencer 1961), kinship and kin terms (Spencer 1960), civil law (Stirling 1957), village political organization (Stirling 1963), dispute management (Starr 1978), urban kinship networks (Duben 1982), and fertility (Kâğıtçıbaşı 1982). Gender studies include gender relations in the family (Olson 1982) and change in gender relations from 1920 to 1990 (Ozbay 1995). Hart examines the impact of modernity on Turkish marriage rites (2009), courtship (2007), and piety (2007).
