BİR İLKLER HALKASI: ELAZIĞ FIRAT ÜNİVERSİTESİ…

Bu yazıyı, Doç. Dr. Sebahattin Devecioğlu, Doç. Dr. Fatih Özek ve Arş. Görv. ve
Edebiyat Öğrenci Topluluğu Danışmanı Sema Oruç ve Edebiyat Öğrenci Topluluğu üyelerine ithaf ediyorum.
Her şeyin bir ilki ve kendi dönüşüm halkası vardır. İletişim ağı ve kendi iç ve dış bağlantıları çerçevesinde de, bir tarihi…
Bu bir insanın doğuşundan, her bir insanın “hayatım da ilk defa” ifadesinde kendini bulan bir zincirler skalasına; o noktadan da görünen-görünmeyen ağlarının birbiriyle örtüşmesine kadar geniş bir alanı kapsar. Bu soyutlama, yer-coğrafya, mekan, tarih, olay, nitelik benzeri her biri kendi içinde ayrı bir olgu da veya kıpırdanma ile başlayan bir çok unsur için geçerlidir. Gerek coğrafi, gerek sosyal, gerek akademik, gerek entellektüel, gerek tarihsel gerekse bireysel birikimler ve olgular bileşkesinde ise “hayatım da ilk defa”ların dahi, kendi içinde—farkında olunsun ya da olunmasın—bir tarihi vardır!
