• Ceyda Elgul deposited Lives in Turkish: A Database of Biography on Humanities Commons 3 years, 2 months ago

    “Lives in Turkish” is an ongoing research project held at Boğaziçi University Department of Translation and Interpreting Studies. We trace the journey of life-writing in Turkish, collect metadata and visuals about biographical publications and biography subjects introduced to the Turkish reader since the early 1800s. Our aim is to propose a comprehensive, reliable, user-friendly, and open-access source on the genre and portray the richness of biography in the Turkish literary setting by embracing translations and original works. This is a digital translation history project and it hopes to contribute to this current research frame with its method and results. Our collection is open to everyone interested!
