The editors of the Jahrbuch Türkisch-Deutsche Studien are pleased to announce Volume 8: Tradition und Moderne in Bewegung. The articles in this volume bear witness to the productive energy of the interplay between tradition and modernity, whether in theater, literature, or popular culture. At the same time, they emphasize the importance of cultural intermediaries, including translators. The volume thus illustrates that – despite (or precisely because of) political developments in Turkey and Germany, alike – a multitude of Turkish-German themes remain vital in both society and the academy, urging further consideration, investigation, discussion, and presentation.

The volume features an article by WiGgie Steffen Kaupp titled “Palimpsestic Performances: Adaptation and Intertextuality in Nurkan Erpulat and Jens Hillje’s Verrücktes Blut” and WiGgie Didem Uca is Assistant Editor of the journal. The volume is open access and available here:
