About the Course

Course Description:

In the last two decades, TV drama production in Turkey has been booming with a significant international impact. Turkey has become the world’s fastest-growing television series exporter in the world and the second-largest drama exporter after the US. Turkish series have recently gained even more visibility generated by the production of Netflix original series in Turkey: these include The Protector (Hakan Muhafız), The Gift (Atiye), Love 101 (Aşk 101). This course provides an overview of contemporary Turkish dramas examining their relation to the historical, social, political, and cultural contexts. The common trends and topics of Turkish television will be analyzed with the transformations Turkey has been going through. It will also look at the cultural adaptations of foreign series and various genres such as historical dramas, rom-coms and action thrillers.
