Assoc. Prof. Nihal YETKİN KARAKOÇ from IUE Department of Translation and Interpreting gave a seminar on Diplomatic Correspondence upon the invitation of Department of International Relations, İzmir Katip Çelebi University.

In the seminar held within the framework of the course titled “Diplomacy from Theory to Practice” at İzmir Katip Çelebi University, Yetkin-Karakoç introduced the linguistic features in diplomatic invitations. Explaining also the discursive features in diplomatic invitations, reminders for invitation and messages in reply, Yetkin-Karakoç answered the students’ questions.

Pointing out the importance of interdisciplinary studies, Yetkin-Karakoç said, “Our disciplines have a lot to learn from each other. With the advances in communication networks, the translation in international relations and diplomatic language has gained an impetus, and become more visible. In diplomacy, 99% success is regarded to be failure and the same applies for diplomatic translation. We aim to train our students to meet the requirements in the field of diplomacy”. Following the seminar, we discussed the possibilities of holding joint workshops, seminar, and panel which would bring the two scientific fields together”.
