Hatice Gonnet-Bağana


Archaeologist Hatice Gonnet-Bağana is a noted Hititologist who has studied and taught in France, worked and directed excavations in Anatolia, and taken part in the activities of UNESCO for the conservation of archaeological sites in Turkey. Gonnet-Bağana’s generous donation of her archives and books to the ANAMED Library in 2014 positioned Koç University to become a leading center for research in Hittitology. The collection consists of 206 publications. Additionally, the most important part of the collection is the archival documents, including Gonnet-Bağana’s correspondence with institutes of learning and other leading scholars (including J. David Hawkins, Paolo Emilio Pecorella, Halime Hüryılmaz, Marie-Louise Vollenweider, Andreas Müller-Karpe, Helmuth Bossert, Paul Garelli, Jamil Armand, Mustafa Büke, and others), as well as photographs of excavation sites taken together with the famous photographer Ara Güler. This archival collection has been digitized by the Koç University Suna Kıraç Library and is accessible to the public. For more details on the collection and Hatice Gonnet-Bağana herself, please see Koç University Archives Specialist Senem Acar’s blogpost.
