Hello. I've recently been reading up on the ideology nationalism quite a bit. I'm reading about different countries' take on nationalism and today it was Turkey's turn. In an article about 1930s nationalism in Turkey, I came across a sentence and I couldn't make sense of it.
What does the bolded part mean? Did Ataturk command Afet Inan to start a programme in the organization?In 1931, the TOTTTH was reorganized as the Society for the Study of Turkish History. Atatürk dictated a programme for the new organization to Afet İnan, a prominent member of the organization, and his adopted daughter. The Society was responsible for disseminating Turkish national history ‘to its real owners, the Turkish people'.
