Biography

I am a cultural anthropologist interested in the state, competing nationalisms, transnationalism and migration, and identity within the contexts of Turkey and the United States. My dissertation explores what the narratives of young adult Kurds in Istanbul, Turkey and Chicago, Illinois might tell us about concepts of ethno-linguistic identity and long-distance nationalism in a global social field.
