“Deep History / January 2021”
Village Institutes were largely shunned from the communist Soviet Union regime and were nothing more than a project to reduce Kemalist ideology to villages, as well as to train loyal servants to the regime. The Village Institutes could not go beyond being “houses of mischief” opened in order to train amirs for the Kemalist regime and to keep the village in its former state.
With the first issue of 2021, our accounting comes alive with the past.
Here is the real face of Village Institutes…

Poet-Writer Yavuz Bülent Bakiler tells that Village Institutes are communist nests full of promises to train teachers, while in the novels written by graduates of Mustafa Özel Village Institutes, he reveals the mentality that underestimates the village and trains amirs for the Kemalist regime. Author-Presenter-Theater Mehmet Önder shows the behind the scenes of the Village Institutes through his book The Revenge of the Snakes, which has also been adapted for cinema, while Mirza Mahmut Demir sheds light on what the nationalist-conservative philistine wrote and drew about the Village Institutes.
