Waiting Time

questions of modernity, aesthetic process, politics, erotics and the tempos of everyday life.

Turkish Literature and Film in a Global Context: This is a call for
contributors for a panel being proposed for the 2009 Modern Language
Association Convention in Philadelphia; I am also planning to put together
an edited collection on the same topic, so any abstracts that are submitted
for the MLA panel will also be considered for the proposed volume. I am
interested in any proposals that approach the subject, dealing with texts
old or new (from Ottoman literature to contemporary work) in any genre. Of
particular interest would be topics related to questions such as the global
reception of texts and films; audiences inside and outside of Turkey

animals in the context of a journal devoted to cultural politics. Essays may address the
contemporary moment or any time in history, and we welcome contributions from any discipline
or critical perspective.

We hope that contributors will take advantage of the several genres minnesota review publishes:
