Journal of American Studies of Turkey (JAST) is
accepting proposals for articles to be published in a
back issue (Fall 2002) of the journal. Deadline for
submissions is June 15, 2003.

A print and on-line publication of the American
Association of Turkey, Journal of American Studies of
Turkey publishes work in English by scholars of any
nationality on American literature, history, art,
music, film, popular culture, institutions, politics,
economics, geography and related subjects. We
particularly welcome articles which cross conventional
borders between academic disciplines as well as
comparative studies of American and other cultures.
JAST also publishes creative work, notes, comments as
well as book and film reviews. All articles are
reviewed by an objective, blind peer-referee process
before acceptance.
