ARTICLE: A piece of Turkish literary journalism history


Turkish weekly journal Servet-i Fünun (Wealth of the Sciences) began publishing in 1891 and attracted contributions from the best Turkish writers until closing down in 1944. At the time weekly journals were a platform for high-quality literature, and also featured poetry, essays and even political analysis.

The article, written by Syed Tanvir Wasti, attempts to assign to the journal and its founder and editor, Ahmed İhsan, their proper place within the history of Turkish literary journalism.

The study is published online by Middle Eastern Studies. It is is available here.
