Turkish Forum, ever since its inception in 1993 and in line with its mission and policies, has always been trying to come up with innovative ideas and lead the way to or be the mouthpiece of the Turkic peoples all around the world. 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli Victory, the war that was nowhere like any other: “There’s nowhere on the Western Front where there’s a continuous line like this. It’s the best-preserved World War I battlefield anywhere in the world.” Gallipoli marked the emergence of the man who would shape modern Turkey, Colonel Mustafa Kemal who would later take the name Ataturk.
Gallipoli proved to be the Turks’ greatest victory of the war. In London, the campaign’s failure led to the demotion of Winston Churchill and contributed to the collapse of Prime Minister H. H. Asquith’s government. The fighting at Gallipoli proved a galvanizing national experience for the Turks . Hence it carries a lot of significance in Turkish History. To make this historical day and event more memorable, Turkish Forum has launched a new project: the E-Journal. The first issue will be dedicated to the 100th Anniversary of the Gallipoli Victory.
To materialize our project we would like all the writers, researchers, academics to submit articles to be published in the first issue of the e-journal.
Please find the details in the attached announcement.
We look forward to receiving your articles. And please do spread the word around.
