Second Year Cohort
Research Interests: 
materialism, post-structuralist thought; memory, temporality; affects, emotions, care; anthropology of work, digital media, technology, addiction; Turkey, Japan


My long-standing research interest ties the phenomenology of digital tools and technologies to regimes of work, capitalist formations, informational networks, and practices of imaging, tabulating, and temporal self-understanding. Practices and possibilities of digital communication set store by the making of fetishes and brands, which ties in well with the production of the work ethic, forms of making affective investments to exploitation. My recent interests address social inequality, the making of moral and care communities, and precarity, as they relate to the histories, materialities and representations of synthetic marijuana addiction in Turkey.

I hold an M.A. in Sociology from Boğaziçi University (2016), a B.S. in Economics (2014) and a B.A. in Sociology (2014) from the same university. Sexual identity and campus activism are recurring themes in the research projects I am involved with, which span the history of social rights movements in Turkey. I also work as a local organizer for Rethinking Economics.
