February 20, 2018

TEHRAN – The prospect of Iranian studies in Turkey will be scrutinized in a session, which is scheduled to be held at Tehran’s Book City Institute on February 26.   

Turkish scholar Kaan Dilek has been invited to speak during the session, which will begin at 4 p.m., the Book City announced on Tuesday.

In the announcement, the institute called Turkey a country that has many things in common with Iran in the cultural fields.

“Iranian studies in the modern style has a century-long history in Turkey and it needs to be developed in the future,” it wrote.

The study of affinities between Iran and Turkey has always received a special attention from the Book City.

In August 2012, the institute organized a session to review Iranian scholar Nader Entekhabi’s book “Nationalism and Modernism in Iran and Turkey”. 

The Book City also teamed up with a number of Iranian organizations to collaborate with Ankara Yildirim Beyazit University in organizing a seminar at the Turkish university in November 2017 to scrutinize the role of women literati in contemporary Persian literature.
