Summary:
Alev Çinar's examination of contemporary Turkey, which stands at the threshold of East and West, of religious and secular nationalism, explores modernity through daily practices and the social construction of identity and political agency in relation to nationalism, secularism, and Islam. Using local details and debates-including an intriguing discussion of veiling-Çinar reveals modernity as a transformative intervention in bodies, places, and times.
