Within Turkey’s changing political and cultural social context there has been a shift in the identity of Islamist youth from the collective to the individual via a process of self-reflexivity. These different expressions reflect a visceral transformation faced by Muslim youth. Through looking at textual, audiovisual, and literary and factual accounts, this chapter reflects upon self-narratives, auto-biography and political performance and the modalities of the transformation of well-educated post-Islamist youth. Such an exploration provides a way to understand the problems of this and future generations of youth who will need to adapt and respond constantly to changing cultural dilemmas.

Keywords:   Turkey, Islamist youth, post-Islamist, generations, politics of self-narratives, autobiography and political performance
