Turkish Historical Society

The Turkish Historical Society also known as Turkish Historical Association or Turkish History Foundation (Turkish: Türk Tarih Kurumu, TTK) is a research society studying the history of Turkey and the Turkish people, founded in 1931 by the initiative of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, with headquarters in Ankara, Turkey. It has been described as “the Kemalist official producer of nationalist historical narratives”. Turkish sociologist Fatma Müge Göçek states that the TTK “failed to carry out independent research of Turkish history, remaining instead the voice of the official ideology”.
