Parsomen, the quarterly periodical of the department of Comparative Literature in Istanbul Bilgi University, seek submissions of papers for its returning issue in November, 2009 after its interval of 2 years. Parsomen aims to establish itself as an international forum for both scholars and graduate students to follow and further current discussions in literary and cultural studies, as well as to create new ones, along with special topics. The special topic for our inaugural issue is METAMORPHOSIS/TRANSFORMATION, although we solicit papers for general topic interests without any limits in an interdisciplinary spectrum that comparative literature departments encourage. Some subtopics for our initial topic, though not exhaustive, might include:
- transformation in art
- transformation in literature
- urban transformation
- periodical transformations
- individual transformation
- social transformation
- cultural transformation
- generic transformations
- visual transformation
- sexual transformations
- transformation in press
- translation as transformation
- adaptation as transformation
- Ovid and his Metamorphoses
- Kafka and his The Metamorphosis

Please submit your documents to bilgiparsomen@gmail.com by August 20, 2009 for our fall issue and follow the Modern Language Association format for citations. For further information and any questions, please visit http://bilgiparsomen.blogspot.com/ and feel free to e-mail us.
