History and profile[edit]

Yeni Dergi was first published in October 1964.[1] Its publisher was De Publications which was owned by Memet Fuat, a Turkish author, and the stated aim of the magazine was to enrich the knowledge base of the Turkish intellectuals.[1][2] Memet Fuat was also the editor-in-chief of the magazine which mostly featured translations of the modernist literary work and contemporary critical theory from the Western sources.[3][4][5] The latter group of texts were about philosophy, aesthetics, politics, and psychology.[1] The most frequent topics covered were existentialism and Marxist criticism.[1][6] The magazine also published thematic issues two of which were concerned with the work of Herbert Marcuse and Prague Spring.[5] From 1969 Yeni Dergi contained less translated texts, and focused on original Turkish works.[1] One of its leading contributors was Tomris Uyar.[7] Conservative poet Cahit Zarifoğlu published articles in the magazine until 1971.[8]

Yeni Dergi folded in 1975 after publishing a total of one hundred twenty-eight issue.[9]
