Tehran’s Book City Institute will hold the prospect of Iranian studies in Turkey on February 26, 2018.

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, Tehran Times reports.
