Gramsci and Hegemony in Turkey

With some claiming the most recent proposal to develop Taksim Square in Istanbul – regarded as a central space of political and social mobilisation – as the latest “mad project” marking the urban transformation of the city, now is a good moment to reflect on the hegemony of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in Turkey.

As I explain in this post on my personal blog, For the Desk Drawer, debates on the general unfolding of the condition of hegemony and the retracing of the restoration and/or reconstitution of class power in Turkey (impelled through mechanisms of uneven geographical development) has therefore only just begun.
