“FİKRET TÜRKMEN ARMAĞANI” INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL
‘Milli Folklor Uluslararası Kültür Araştırmaları Dergisi (National Folklore International Culture Research Journal) one of the two journals scanned by international indexes in the field of social sciences in Turkey, published its 101st Spring issue in honour of Lecturer Prof. Dr. Fikret Türkmen, Turkish Language Coordinator at IUE Faculty of Arts and Science. The journal includes an article on biography of Prof. Dr. Fikret Türkmen and his work, and interviews in addition to 21 scientific articles dedicated to him and 5 translated articles.
Prof. Dr. Türkmen, who has 21 books mostly on Turkic World and more than 500 scientific articles on many subjects, pointed out that the journal was scanned by A&HCI, one of the most important indexes of science world, and by ULAKBIM in Turkey. He said that this was such an honour for his professional life.
‘Folklore is as ancient as the history of humanity’
Prof. Dr. Türkmen stated that folklore was a very young discipline, and he stated the following:
“There are two sides to folklore. The first one deals with folkloric materials, and the other one analysis. When we approach folklore in terms of materials, we can see that it is as ancient as the history of humanity. However, folkloric knowledge that made it to present day through verbal or written sources can only be used as subsidiary materials because they are sometimes provided accidentally or with a different purpose. Even though we have rich materials, we do not have a folkloric study like the ones in Western countries yet. I want young academicians to be enthusiastic. They can only succeed this way. They need to keep up with the world. You cannot become a scientist without knowing the world. Have the courage to speak out your mind. Do not be afraid of criticisms. Otherwise, you cannot excel.”
