This afternoon I talked to Oznur Yalgin, a young Turkish woman living in Belfast. She’s a former teacher of English in Turkey and has published many short stories in journals and magazines. A collection of her short stories will be published in Turkey at some point in the autumn. But the thread running through my questions was how aware she was of nationalism in her education, and what uses is nationalism being put to in Turkey. Watch it – she really does put nationalism in a wider setting.
