the representation of the past in modern turkish fiction:conceptualizing history in tutunamayanlar and ölmeye yatmak

By Selvin Yaltir


By analyzing two works of fiction from the 1970s in Turkish literature, this research project aims to see how the representation of the past functions in relation to theories on history writing within fiction. My research question is a two-fold one: It aims to investigate whether the engagement with the past in these novels signifies any concern for the problematization of history as such and whether the use of the past in these novels works rather as a mediator to critically refer to a lived past.This project aims to investigate how this research will contribute to any new definitions and/or the reconsideration of the concept of the historical novel
