Summary
  • Turkey's path toward accession to the EU is complicated by the fact that stereotypes of Turks continue to provide an important "Other" against which a supposed European "Self" is contrasted. Unlike previous studies, this book carefully traces the source of contemporary stereotypes back to their medieval eastern and Latin Christian origins, showing the astonishing resilience of the religious imagery despite the advanced secularization of modern Europe. The analysis is informed by an original theory of collective identity as dramatic performance - which revolves around the concepts of roles, scripts, and narratives - and employs a form of historical critical discourse analysis
  • "This book critically examines the origins of today's anti-Islamic rhetoric in Europe with a specific focus on representations of Turkey. Applying a novel theoretical framework that understands collective identities as dramaturgical achievements, it shows that stereotypes of Turks continue to provide an important "Other" against which a supposed European "Self" is contrasted. The book identifies two competing meta-narratives that have long vied for the right to define Christendom and later Europe, and argues that the struggle over these narratives - one tragic, the other comic - have come to a head in Turkey's current bid for EU membership"--
