UA assistant professor Elif Shafak's court date is September 21 in Istanbul according to a new report coming out of Turkey. According to the Guardian, nobody has been convicted under the law known as "Article 301", but the Arizona Republic notes that "Many authors, publishers and journalists have been charged under Article 301."
