Page Number :: 01-07
Worldwide, the number of Internally Displaced People (IDP)is estimated at 51.2 million,according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR: 2014).Nigeria has the largest population of displaced people in Africa (3.3 million IDP) and the third highest populationof displaced people in the world, behind Syria (6.5 million people IDP) and Columbia (7 million IDP). Conflict, natural disasters, political uncertainty, religious conflict, ethnic violence, insurgency, militancy, kidnapping and recently terrorism are amongst the major causes of displacement in Nigeria. People tend to naturally move their family and property away from violent prone areas to more peaceful, stable and predictable surroundings. Though, it is important to note that displacement is not limited to poverty stricken, conflict affected or war ravagedcountries alone. Yet displacement can also be found in middle income countries such as Georgia, Colombia, Azerbaijan, Syria and Turkey.

Paper Title :: Urbanization and Moral Corruption in the House of Mirth
Author Name :: Dr. Figun Dinçer
Country :: Turkey
Page Number :: 28-31
Edith Wharton (1862-1937) generally deals with the social and individual problems of upper-class of her time in her novels. Some of her works are known to be the novels of manners with some central themes of sexuality, materialism and the manners of the families. One of the themes in The House of Mirth (1905), as Blake Nevius (1953: 55) notes, is the waste of human and spiritual resources which in America went hand in hand with the exploitation of the land and forests. Morality can be considered as one example of how it is reflected as a waste of human and spiritual resources. The present study is an attempt to evaluate the signs of urbanization and the corruption in the moral values especially related with the marriage institution due to urbanization and materialism and how the characters suffer at the hands of social manacles while struggling with reputation, which also demonstrates the corruption. The problems caused by the urbanization are also observed within the hostile relationships among the women, which even causes death of Lily Bart.
Keywords: The House of Mirth, urbanization, morality, corruption.

Paper Title :: The USA and the Marshall Aid as Reflected in Amerikan Sargisi (American Bandage) by Fakir Baykurt
Author Name :: Dr. Figun Dinçer
Country :: Turkey
Page Number :: 32-38
This paper is an attempt to analyze how American involvement to Turkey through the Marshall Plan is ironically and satirically explored within the eyes of the villagers in Fakir Baykurt‟s novel Amerikan Sargısı (American Bandage). The novel is set in an important era in Turkish history where the Democrat Party rules and the Marshall Plan, officially named as the European Recovery Program. He keeps reminding nationalism and the value of national sources including the culture and values. For this reason, he uses the local dialect to emphasize the importance of maintaining national identity and protecting being Turkish from a risk of dissolution in the American culture. In this paper, the major ideas of developmentalism and dependency theories help explore the novel. In the paper, a brief theoretical look with the Marshall Plan and the Party era is presented with a discussion of the novel under the light of these two theories.
Keywords: Amerikan Sargısı, Fakir Baykurt, developmentalism, dependency, the Marshall Plan.
