My name is Hakan Özkan. I am Assistant Professor and Research Fellow for Arabic Literature, Greek dialectology and linguistics. This personal website and blog is about everything Middle-Eastern, Turkish and Greek. Obviously, the main focus will be on literatures from the Arab countries, Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and Greece. But I will delve into other subjects as well, such as world literature, linguistics, music, photography, culture, IT, politics etc. You are kindly invited to share your thoughts.This site is a multilingual venture. Although the main language is English, there will be texts in Arabic, French, German, Greek, Persian, and Turkish.
