TEHRAN.(Iranart) – The role of women literati in contemporary Persian literature will be discussed during a seminar at Ankara Yildirim Beyazit University in Turkey on Wednesday.

Maryam Hosseini, Mahin Panahi, Masumeh Khonakdar, Nasrin Zabeti and several other Iranian literati will deliver lectures during the colloquium.
In addition, a number of Turkish scholars, including Metin Dogan, Omer Faruk Ergezen, Hayriye Unal, Serife Yerdemir and Musa Balci, will also present their papers.
