Senior Lecturer in Ethnopolitics
I have studied geography at the University of Toulouse-Le Mirail, and geopolitics at the University of Marne-La-Vallée and Paris IV (France). I gained my PhD in Geopolitics at the University of Paris IV- Sorbonne in 2005. My PhD thesis addressed the question of the development of a Kurdish field of literature in the context of language conflict in Turkey. I also graduated in Kurdish Language and Civilisation at the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales (INALCO) in Paris in 2003. I taught geography at the INALCO from 2003 to 2007, when I joined the University of Exeter as a researcher for EXCEPS, the Exeter Centre for Ethno-Political Studies.
I am member of the editorial board of the European Journal for Turkish Studies.
My research interests include the following :
- environment, ecological mobilisation, and rurality,
- cultural heritage, space, and identity
- ethnicity and the fields of cultural production.
I mainly conduct research in Turkey, Kurdistan and the diasporas.
