Russian, E. European & Eurasian Center: Co-sponsored Events

Join us to learn about the life, works and philosophy of Yunus Emre, the Anatolian Turkish Sufi and folk poet. On the occasion of the 700th anniversary of the death of one of the most important figures of Turkish language and culture, 2021 was declared as the "Turkish and Yunus Emre Year" by UNESCO. This event aims to introduce this prominent public figure with the long-standing Anatolian Sufi culture. Simultaneous translation will be used for this event.
