Title: What is in a name: Subtle Jeopardies Turkish Immigrants Experience
Authors: Sev'er, Aysan
Keywords: race
Turkish Canadians
Issue Date: 1999
Citation: Bizim Anadolu 6 (70-72): 2.
Abstract: The literature on race and ethnic relationships is voluminous, especially in the U.S. where such relationships have been studied as potential problems to the melting pot ideology the U.S. holds dear. In Canada, whether we ascribe to the ideology of multiculturalism, or rally under the more recent emphasis on diversities, cultural variations appear to be a celebrated aspect of the Canadian mosaic. Indeed, well-meaning studies, task-forces, reports and policies on immigration and racial and ethnic minorities abound. Unlike the political nicities, the sociological literature on these domains sufficiently highlight the conflictual dimensions in these relationships. Social ills in terms of attitudes (prejudice, ethnocentrism, racism and antisemitism are examples) or behaviour (such as discrimination, racially motivated riots, and at the extreme, lynchings, ethnic cleansing and holocaust) fill many scholarly as well as mass-consumption books and journals.
