Literature Review
? This article, which was published on the Turkish government’s website for culture, talks
about the history of turkish architecture and a very important turkish architect known as
“The Great Architect Sinan.” The article says, “Sinan is considered the greatest Ottoman
architect of the Ottoman Empire’s Architectural heritage.” Even though Turkish
architecture greatly consists of mosques and religious temples, it is also full of fantastic
buildings and architectural inventions. This article does not talk about the turkish
architecture in detail but it helped me get the first impression.
? This article, which was published on the Turkish government’s website for culture, talks
about the grand turkish literature which stars all the way from 700’s to our current
century. The article also talks about the Turkish language which formed many dialects
centuries ago due to wide spreading of the people. Article also talks about some
important time frames ( Turkish literature before and after islam and etc.) too. It is a very
detailed article about turkish literature and language.
? This article, which was published on the Turkish government’s website for culture, talks
aabout the famous and vague Turkish cuisine. It features information on the cuisines of
Central Asian Turks, such as Uzbek, Kazakh, Turkmen, Azerbaijani and Kirghiz and
their influences on Turkish cuisine; provides information on the history of Turkish
cuisine, including Seljuk and Ottoman cuisine through the help of historical documents. It
is a very helpful article and they keep adding information.
The Republic of Turkey is a transcontinental country which resides mainly in Anatolia in
Southeast Asia and partly in Eastern Europe. The land where Turkey stands right now has been
inhabited since the Paleolithic age by numerous ancient civilizations such as Greeks, Assyrians,
Armenians, Urartians, and etc. After Aristotle’s pupil Alexander the Great conquered this
important piece of land, the land was dominated by the greeks. However, the Seljuk Turks’
victory over Byzantium in 1071 marks the start of Turkification in Anatolia. Considering
Turkey’s geographical feature, this land is known to be one of the most strategically important
for the world. Since it is almost perfectly in the middle of our planet Earth, many empires and
rulers tried to gain the control of it. This huge desire of other empires to conquer this land and it
being the center of trade for so many years led to the creation of big cultural values. Having tons
of dishes, rituals, ethnicities from other nations mixed in its culture, Turkey is one of the most
multicultural nations in the world.
Additional Notes for the Field Research Project
These additional notes explain what you need to write for each section. It’s a “step by step review.”
The complete field research project should contain each of the sections in the Field Research
Guidelines document. The paper should have 1.5 line spacing and be written in font 12 Times New
When you start a new section, please start on a new page (for example, go to a new page for the
“Literature Review” when you are done writing your “Introduction” and so on). At the beginning of
each section, the following titles should appear in bold, underlined, and size 14 font on a
separate new page:
Cover Page
The information that should appear on your cover page is listed in the presentation called “Field
Research Guidelines.” You can also add a photo or two if you like.
This is a brief summary of everything from your Introduction to your Conclusion. It should be 5 to
7 lines long. Though this appears in the beginning of the paper, people usually write this last
because you briefly mention some of your later findings in it.
At the very least, this should be half a page long. In here you will introduce the culture you are
Also explain the population you will study: Your population can be of a specific age group, gender,
or behavior (people who are fans of a certain type of music or people who act in “Off Broadway”
plays for example). Your population can also be general, such as people of all ages who come from
a certain geographic location. Your sample will just be a number: How many people will you
interview and how many surveys will you distribute? (See the methods section for an idea of what
your sample should be.)
At the end of your introduction, list your two hypotheses that are the two “educated guesses” that
you are trying to prove or disprove. So the entire point of this paper is to either prove whether your
hypotheses seem valid or not. Each hypothesis can be one or two sentences long.
Literature Review
Choose at least three authors or theories listed in your textbook or from other sources, and describe
your topic using those three theories. This section should be at least one and a half to two pages
Describe the methods you will use to conduct research on the culture you chose. How will you do
your research? I have listed some methods you can use in the presentation called “Field Research
Guidelines.” Surveys can be kept short, at around four to six questions. Please note that for this
project, you have a choice of what sample you will study:
Conduct two interviews and distribute 20 surveys or
Conduct four longer interviews if you do not want to distribute a survey
This section should be at least half a page long.
Here you will list the information you have found in the following formats:
– Excerpts of your interviews in either bullet point format or in a large table
– Charts that list the results of your surveys (for example, a pie chart of how many people answered
yes versus how many answered no to a question)
– Any additional chart that you came across during your research (for this you obviously must cite
your source on the page and list it in the end in the References section)
Keep this section organized and well presented. Before adding each of the things mentioned above,
add a brief description of what your reader is looking at. For example, before a chart you can write
something like “The following chart shows the increase of…”
The length of this section is up to you, as it will depend on how large you chose to make your
graphs and charts.
Here you will describe the results that you have listed in the previous Findings section. For
example, if you listed a chart that represents an increase of people listening to a certain type of
music over the past ten years in your Findings section, here you will explain the reasons behind
that increase. (For example, did new forms of media such as Youtube increase the visibility or the
popularity of a trend in music? Does the music represent a political message in a certain country?
Was there a single recording artist who made a certain type of music popular?)
In this section you will also briefly recall the three theories of your Literature Review section.
At the end of the Discussion section, who will say whether or not you think your two hypotheses
were proven by your research. By the way, it’s fine if you say that one of your hypotheses appears
“wrong” or better yet that your research did not prove that it was valid.
This section should be at least two and a half pages long.
Review the presentation called “Field Research Guidelines” to see what will go in this section.
This section should be at least half a page long.
List all of the books, magazines, or websites that you have used for this research project. There is a
sample format of a reference in the presentation called “Field Research Guidelines.”
