Our University, which carries out important studies in the field of Environmental Human Sciences, has added a new one to its achievements in this field with the international academic publication edited by our faculty members.
The first international academic book that combines eco-criticism theory and Turkish culture / literature research, Turkish Ecocriticism: From Neolithic to Contemporary Timescapes (Rowman & Littefield, Lexington Books), edited by the English Language and Literature faculty members, Prof. Dr. Serpil Oppermann and Dr. Lec. Sinan Akıllı, met with the reader.
Turkish Ecocriticism: From Neolithic to Contemporary Timescapes explores the values, perceptions, and transformations of the environment, ecology, and nature in Turkish culture, literature, and the arts. Through these themes, it examines historical and contemporary environmentally engaged literary and cultural traditions in Turkey. The volume re-imagines Turkey in its geo-social and ecocultural narratives of multiple connections and complexities, in its multi-faceted webs of histories, and in its rich multispecies stories.
