Inspired by the vision of Sakıp Sabancı (1933–2004), who always emphasized the importance of building bridges between cultures and the significance of transcending disciplinary boundaries to achieve academic excellence, Columbia University’s Sakıp Sabancı Center for Turkish Studies aspires to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge and the exchange of ideas between scholars and students engaged in various fields of Turkish Studies, including those that focus on the history, language, religion, and culture of peoples and empires that occupied the Anatolian peninsula in historic and prehistoric times. Situating Turkish Studies in a comparative and global context, the Sakıp Sabancı Center supports academic research, course offerings, and public events both within and outside of Columbia University and New York City, utilizing the resources of both the university’s New York campuses and its Global Center in Istanbul.
