This chapter examines a case study of emotions, memory, and contemporary history in its multiple manifestations within Turkey. I argue that collective action in Turkey was immersed and structured through a broad panoply of emotional and mnemonic-based instances after the assassination of Hrant Dink, a widely esteemed Armenian journalist and editor of the bilingual Turkish-Armenian newspaper, Agos. On January 19, 2007, a Turkish nationalist shot Dink. His funeral assembled nearly 100,000 people. This chapter inquires as to whether the long march of moral protest-which occurred after the assassination-could be analyzed as the result of a “moral shock” (Jasper and Poulsen 1995) triggered by complex emotions.
