This exhibit will showcase Turkish Film Posters from the collection of Stanford Libraries and Academic Information Resources. The exhibition will feature rare, yet highly sought-after, hand-drawn film posters that date back to the early 1950s offering the best examples of the Turkish film industry's golden years. The exhibit will highlight concepts such as foreign adaptations and imitations, Western and Eastern influence and representations of gender, minority, or majority, and as a result will provide a base for discussion between Turkish cinema and other cinemas. By providing visual print materials and scholarly research, we expect to initiate further discussion on interpretation of poster art as historical artifact and Turkish cinema in general, and incorporating cinema in teaching of humanities and social sciences in particular.
When: Ongoing every day from Monday, October 3, 2011 through Friday, October 14, 2011.

There are movies based on literary works (“Paradise Lost” is on the way, I am told), bio-pics about literary greats (“Bright Star,” “The Hours”), movies that feature a bit of literary criticism (“Animal House,” “Dead Poets Society,” “The History Boys”), even movies — documentaries — about literary critics (Zizek and Derrida, who are only literary critics occasionally), but no movies I know of about literary criticism as such. None, that is, until “Howl,” the new movie about Allen Ginsberg starring James Franco, which is not only about literary criticism but is the performance of literary criticism, an extended “explication de texte.”
