To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Republic of Turkey, Nesir: Journal of Literary studies will dedicate its fifth issue to the theme of “Republic of Literature, Literature of Republic.” In this issue, the journal delves into Turkey’s republican experience and its manifestations and effects on fictional and non-fictional literary productions, as well as their reception, in comparison to similar experiences in other countries. In addition to examining the relationship between literature and politics, the issue encourages critical, historical, and interdisciplinary perspectives to be applied to the concept of the “autonomy of literature.”
