The title of this years symposium is “Literature and Law” / The Three Kemal’s of Literature / Law and Justice in Orhan Kemal, Kemal Tahir, Yaşar Kemal’s Novels”.  

Symposium announcement topics:
The topic of "Literature and Law”, is looking at how the subject of “Law and Justice” has been handled in the stories and novels of our literature’s three masters Orhan Kemal, Kemal Tahir and Yaşar Kemal in an interdisciplinary view and it is the search of the similar, separate and differing law and justice understandings being present or not within the novels and stories.  In other words, it is the success of being able to describe the way that our three masters of literature looked at justice and law in their novels and stories during their period of history and how their understanding has reflected in the law and justice of today with literature and law. 
We want to try to understand, put our thoughts down on paper, to explain and discuss all together how law came together with literature or literature with justice and the characters our three literature masters Orhan Kemal, Kemal Tahir and Yaşar Kemal have added to our lives and the people they have created within their masterpieces. 
Let’s discuss together how “law and justice” has been described in a novel we choose, some or all of these novels and let’s talk about how it was lived through, the pain suffered, happiness, resentment, anger, hope, love, romance and heroism on this land reflected in these novels and stories of our three masters of literature and lets find solutions in this symposium. 
The language of the symposium will be Turkish. 
Only novels and stories of Orhan Kemal, Kemal Tahir and Yaşar Kemal can be chosen. Evaluation will be done for only one of our authors. If it is wanted, the work of our three authors can be evaluated together, compared and evaluated together with one another. 
In this context, in order to give an idea on announcement titles; In the three Kemals’, Orhan Kemal, Kemal Tahir and Yaşar Kemal, novels and works; 
1. How is the concept of law and justice portrayed? 
2. Can you create a connection between the understanding of law and justice in the novels and real life law and justice? 
3. What purpose does literature serve in law and justice? 
No doubt that the announcements’ and headings will not be restricted to these questions. 
Other headings and announcements relating to the topic will be evaluated by the Jury.
