Petr Kucera's picture

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce a new publication on Orhan Pamuk and his work:

Julian Rentzsch and Petr Kucera (eds.): Texts, Contexts, Intertexts. Studies in Honor of Orhan Pamuk (Ergon-Verlag, 2022)

The volume contains eighteen academic contributions examining the work of Orhan Pamuk, one of the leading authors of contemporary Turkish literature. Scholars working in Turkey, Central and Northern Europe, and the USA discuss various issues of his fictional and non-fictional texts, such as narrative technique, his treatment of historical, social, political, and cultural phenomena, aspects of intertextuality and intermediality, questions of genre as well as the reception of his work in different societies. As the number of academic studies on Pamuk in English is still relatively limited, this book will provide an international readership with an academic interest in literature with new insights and approaches to his work.
