Ege University 14th Internatiınal Cultural Studies Symposium

Seemingly, the history of humanity has fashioned itself on the tri-partite relationship between confinement, resistance and freedom. Each and every epoch has its own forms of confinement which are met with its own kind of resistance which may or may not be resolved with some form of freedom. Ironically, even after the first decade of the 21st century these concepts still play a prominent role concerning the human condition. One would think that centuries of accumulated human thought and development would have opened up new avenues of discussion.
