Kurdish Literature has gone through many turbulent periods. If we consider the Yarsan (Yaristan) Kurdish balladry in Gorani dialect the advent of the Kurdish Literature after Islam then we can call the third century (A.H.) a starting point of Kurdish Literature. Many poems have been composed in Gorani dialect. Beyonds this other Kurdish dialects have actively contributed to the treasures of Kurdish literature such as Hawrami Kurdish, Northern Kurdish (Kirmanj) and Mid Kurdish (Sorani). Throughout centuries Kurdish Literature has been influenced by different intellectuals and religious movements as well as neighbourings' litterateurs.
The above characteristics are the base for this International conference on history and development of Kurdish Literature organised by the centre for Kurdish Language and Literature studies of University of Kurdistan/Iran. The conference is an attempt to lead the future academic and scholarly analyses from various perspectives.
