Date : 13.12.2013 18:30:00
Location : Ali Emiri Efendi Cultural Center

Speaker: Nuri SAĞLAM

The seminar will discuss to what extent it is true to define a literary period, which lasts from the Constitutional Monarchy to Republic period but doesn’t involve such great poets as Mehmet Akif, Yahya Kemal and Ahmet Haşim, as “National Literature” and it will address the political idea underlying this definition.
