This talk is to share the findings of the newly completed TÜBİTAK research project about the representation of Syrian asylum seekers in Turkish press. The data set comprises all news and photographs published between 2011 and 2015 in five national newspapers with the highest circulation figures (Hürriyet, Posta, Sabah, Sözcü, Zaman). Specifically focusing on visual representations, the talk examines the themes and meanings in the photographs of Syrian asylum seekers and offers a commentary on their possible effects for the people they represent.
