   Abstract = {Abstract: The Allied occupation of Istanbul is a
             little-known historical event outside of Turkey and the
             Middle East. European powers occupied Istanbul between 1918
             and 1923 to enforce the partition of the Ottoman Empire
             after WWI in the construction of the Modern Middle East.
             Almost 100 Turkish novels that address occupied Istanbul
             have appeared over the last ninety years, beginning even
             before Allied armies left Istanbul in 1923. Turkey's present
             Middle Eastern re-emergence and post-Kemalist reassessment
             of secular modernity has also led writers and intellectuals
             back to the occupation of Istanbul. To examine why Turkish
             authors return repeatedly to the trope of occupied Istanbul,
             this essay surveys the first canonised novels about occupied
             Istanbul written during the Kemalist monoparty period
             (1923–50): Shirt of Flame by the exiled feminist and
             nationalist Halide Edib (1884–1964), Sodom and Gomorrah by
             the Kemalist ideologue Yakup Kadri Karaosmanoğlu
             (1889–1974) and Outside the Scene by Turkey's first
             experimental, modernist author Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar
             (1902–62). As bilingual Istanbul intellectuals, all three
             made occupied Istanbul a central drama in their fictions.
             However, each represented it differently as a formative
             event in the construction and critique of the nation-state
             and of modern Turkish subject-formation.},

   Abstract = {This essay compares and contrasts Turkish author Halide
             Edib's novel The Shirt of Flame (Duffield & Company, 1921)
             to the second volume of her memoirs, The Turkish Ordeal (The
             Century Company, 1928). Both texts have female protagonists
             and parallel plots and take place during the Allied
             occupation of Istanbul (1918-23). Both texts are
             manifestations of an emerging Turkish national master
             narrative. By highlighting the tensions between the
             first-person narratives of the novel, the memoir, and the
             emplottment of the national master narrative, this essay
             offers an analysis of tensions between cosmopolitan Islamic
             feminism and secular nationalism. This essay describes how
             memoir (whether an actual memoir, such as The Turkish
             Ordeal, or a fictional memoir, such as The Shirt of Flame)
             constructs the object of its knowledge (the feminist self),
             and furthermore, how the feminist self can be read either as
             constitutive of national allegory (as in The Shirt of Flame)
             or as an allegorical critique of patriarchal nationalism (as
             in the English-language The Turkish Ordeal). The essay
             concludes by showing how Halide Edib's perspective allows
             for a gendered reading of the national master narrative and
             the Orientalist/nationalist binary upon which it is

   Abstract = {Turkish novelists have often contested the authoritarian
             tendencies of the republican state. Orhan Pamuk was charged
             with insulting Turkishness in 2005, emphasizing a
             long-standing opposition between author and state as well as
             between literature and secularism. Though Pamuk's trial gave
             him the status of dissident, it simultaneously ignored the
             formal innovations and political transgressions of his
             novels. This essay traces confrontations between Turkish
             literary modernity and secular modern state power in Pamuk's
             work and the Turkish novel. Such an analysis reveals that
             narratives of the nation-state (devlet), bound to the
             secularization thesis, have often been contested by Ottoman,
             Islamic, and Sufi contexts (signifying din). I argue that
             the unresolved opposition between the secular, material
             narratives of devlet and the sacred, redemptive narratives
             of din is productive of the modern Turkish novel and defines
             its literary modernity. Thus, Pamuk's dissidence also
             resides in modes of writing that contest the nation form and
             revise the secularization thesis through new representations
             of Turkish historiography, Istanbul cosmopolitanism, the
             Ottoman archive, political parody, and secular Sufism. Such
             literature that confronts representations of devlet with
             those of din constitutes the “secular blasphemies” that
             define the politics of the Turkish novel.},

   Abstract = {Global Perspectives on Orhan Pamuk is an interdisciplinary
             collection of essays that explores Pamuk’s multifaceted
             approach to ordinary Turkish life. The contributors of this
             volume come from an array of international perspectives that
             place the reading of Pamuk into dynamic arenas of new
             interpretation and reflection. The themes of existentialism
             and politics are examined in illuminating essays through
             connections to nationalism, religion/secularity,
             traditional/modern, exile/home, and comparative readings of
             writers as Mohsin Hamid, Naguib Mahfouz, Italo Svevo, and
             Amitav Ghosh. This is an indispensable collection for

             its institutions. In this fourth volume of The Cambridge
             History of Turkey a team of some of the most distinguished
             scholars of modern Turkey have come together to explore the
             interaction between these two aspects of Turkish
             modernization. The volume begins in the nineteenth century
             and traces the historical background through the reforms of
             the late Ottoman Empire, the period of the Young Turks, the
             War of Independence and the founding of the Ataturk’s
             Republic. Thereafter, the volume focuses on the Republican
             period to consider a range of themes including political
             ideology, economic development, the military, migration,
             Kurdish nationalism, the rise of Islamism, and women’s
             struggle for empowerment. The volume concludes with chapters
