''Daughter (-in-law) of Turkey'': an account of international marriages from South East Asian women in Istanbul
Chan, Oi Ting (2017) ''Daughter (-in-law) of Turkey'': an account of international marriages from South East Asian women in Istanbul. [Thesis]
Thanks to globalization and increasing geographic mobility, international marriages have become more popular in Turkey, and a growing number of Turkish men are getting married to foreign women with diverse backgrounds in terms of national identity and culture. This master thesis documents the accounts of “East Asian brides” in Turkey and the role of overlapping social media groupings among them. Oral history interviews were conducted from March 2016 to May 2017 with 20 respondents from Vietnam, the Philippines, China, Republic of China (Taiwan), South Korea, and Thailand, recording first-hand their day-to-day existence, conflicts, difficulties, and adaptation to life in Turkey. The thesis traces the roles and influences of social media (e.g. Facebook) interaction among these brides, and re-examines their lives in Turkey with a synthetic approach.
