Nesir: Journal of Literary Studies seeks to provide a platform for literary research from Turkey and features articles (in Turkish and English) that are informed by and contribute to the recent discussions on world literature taking shape on a local and global scale. While the journal is committed to advancing the study of Turkish literature, it aims to reach beyond the confines of one national literature and features work from different regions, languages, and periods that draw on knowledge from a wide range of disciplines, including comparative literature, philology, and cultural studies. Nesir is dedicated to spurring critical conversations among scholars of different disciplines and theoretical concerns that can translate into inspiring as well as pioneering scholarly work.

Motivated by these principles, Nesir aspires to join the ranks of refereed academic journals published in Turkey and around the globe to multiply diverse scholarly voices.
