UBC Theses and Dissertations. Arzu Ozturkmen, Department of History, Bogazici University External Examiner, Professor October 5, iii Abstract This dissertation is a theoretical and practical investigation of the implications of the figure of the prostitute and utilization of feminist theory on sex work in performance practice. Through my interdisciplinary grasp of the notion of the prostitute, I arguethat the figure of the prostitute and its rearticulation through sex work theories can offer a methodological tool to reconsider the notions of femininity and masquerade in their relation to labour.
Through the lens of critical theory and practice-based research, I seek to work at the intersection of sex work politics and performance practice. The second chapter looks at the role of the figure of the actress, and that of the prostitute as its counter-figure, in the formation of the new Republican woman in Turkey. The third chapter revisits feminist theory on femininity and masquerade. The fourth chapter examines the notion of labour, the feminist critique of Marxist labour theory, and different approaches to sex work within feminism.

Virginie Magnat, who has been there with me with kindness, patience, and love through all the stages of my research and writing from the very beginning of my graduate studies.
I cannot imagine this dissertation completed without our productive conversations, which widened my thinking and trained my writing from many perspectives. Every time I felt that my confusion and questions were too overwhelming to be shared with another person, Dr. Magnat was there with me to work through them. My gratitude for her will stay with me, always. Besides my advisor, I would like to thank the rest of my thesis committee.
