Abstract

This article analyzes the emerging phenomenon of urban migrants to the villages of Western Anatolia — specifically, the case of two villages, Yeni Orhanli and Yagcilar. Also referred to as "urbanite villagers" in the popular media, these urban migrants, like many suburbanites, are searching for healthier, more authentic lives for themselves and their families. In the process, they have created a phenomenon I call "hip villages" — villages with "country" style. However, their standing in these villages is one of isolation and intrusion: isolating themselves to protect class-based distinctions, and intruding whenever they see a need for improvement. In relation to Yeni Orhanli and Yagcilar, hip villages in the making, the article discusses the conflicts and complexities that emerge from the formation/manifestation of class-based identities and from manifestations of colonial discourse and global consumer culture.
