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.
The JAST homepage can be reached below.
