I am Banu Ozer-Griffin. I am the Director of Turkish Language Program and the Lecturer of Turkish.
The Department of Near Eastern Studies offers programs in a variety of ancient and modern languages of the region and Turkish is one of these Near Eastern languages housed at the Department of NES at Cornell University. Cornell University’s Turkish Language Program is affiliated with the Department of Linguistics and The Language Resource Center and is sponsored and promoted by the Ottoman and Turkish Language Studies Initiative at Cornell University. The language is within department and across disciplines by connecting the faculty members and the student body around scholarly activities including language learning and research.
