Linguistic Imperialism or Cultural Diplomacy? British Council and The People’s Houses in Early Republican Turkey
In this study, the language courses started in the People’s Houses at the beginning of 1940s by British Council of which presence has been subject to various speculations in Turkey are examined within the scope of language imperialism and cultural propaganda. In addition, in this period of World War II, the fact of propaganda which is an effective means of struggle by European great powers is also one of the concepts used to examine the activities of British Council in Turkey. British cultural propaganda, which started with the principle of turning English into a world language, was transformed into a systematic activity after the establishment of the British Council and during World War II, it was seen as the instrument of political struggle by using against the spread of the Axis states in the cultural sphere. While the British Council’s language courses in People’s Houses are seen as part of cultural propaganda for the British, the political elites of Turkey in that period saw the British Council’s activities as a driving force in its Westernization / modernization adventure.
