LIT 594 Modern Turkish Literature Select Term:
What are the repercussions of social and political movements in Turkish literature? How is the cultural dynamism of Turkey represented on the literary plane? This course will explore modern Turkey and its literature through the works of writers such as Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar, Oğuz Atay, Adalet Ağaoğlu and Orhan Pamuk. The course will attempt to define what we mean by "Turkish national literature" by analyzing representations of gender, religion, cultural and national identity not only in works written in Turkish but also those written in a language other than Turkish (predominantly English) and published outside the borders of Turkey (Selma Ekrem, Halide Edib.)
