This site is designed to enable researchers access to the
resources for the history of Modern Turkish Literature (1923-) in English.
The bibliographical data which will be put on this site paves
to discover the story of a literature in a foreign language. A literature
in translation has several aspects to be investigated. The formation of a
canon in a foreign language, the choices of the translated texts, the
publishers of these texts, are only some of these aspects.
This site is a part of a research project which is aiming to delineate
the dynamics of translating from Turkish literature into English. The
result of this project will hopefully be related not only to the
literature under investigation, but it will also improve our understanding
of the production and transmission of literature in the world
