Scènes de Genre. Les séries feuilletonnantes turques et leurs publics : le cas de Poyraz Karayel

Abstract : TV series occupies today (even more than yesterday) a dominant place in Turkish broadcasting consumption. It is at the intersection of various dynamics through political, socio-cultural and economic orders. Regarding production, it is a significant component of national soft power, with Turkey being the second largest exporter of series (particularly in the Middle East) after the United States. On the domestic front, the production of series obeys the imperatives of the competition that is regulated by the government, each of the 553 television channels (national, regional and local) being in search of a maximum audience. The daily listening time of the Turkish people being 5h 50min., well above the European average, the series represents an essential part of the television consumption. As we will see on this work, the series accounted for almost 63% of prime time programming in 2013-2014. Our research focuses on the work of gender at work on the series. We consider that the question of social gender relations is less "special" than "revealing" of a state of society. To do this, we opted for the study of the series Poyraz Karayel, for reasons of good notoriety: In 2015, this series appears in second position of the most watched television broadcasts. Our approach focuses on the reception practices, however leaves ample room for the speeches of the producers of the series through the individual interviews. Comprehensive interviews were then conducted with spectators by meeting them in their place of life, during the broadcast of the series. These interviews gave rise to portraits revealing a way of being in the world and singularly "to be gender". Finally, taking up the highlights of the portraits, a "transverse analysis" took place, which dealt with a certain number of themes such as the body, love, family, etc. This zoom on singular practices aims to contribute to the work of reflection on the relations between the Genre and the cultural productions that are series, within the framework of contemporary Turkey.
