Biography

I am trained in European intellectual history and my research involves the history of European Union Enlargement, moving beyond the negotiation process to look at how Enlargement was perceived culturally and intellectually.
More specifically, my work to date has focused on the early history of Turkish-EEC relations (1959-1980), examining the different ways Turks imagined Europe, and their place within it, through a broad debate on joining the Common Market.
Before joining the EUI, I served as a visiting Assistant Professor at Columbia University in New York and Bowdoin College in Maine. I received my M.A. and Ph.D. in History from Columbia University and hold B.A.s in History and Economics from the University of California at Berkeley. My doctoral thesis, ‘Associating Turkey with Europe: Civilization, Nationalism, and the EEC’, was supervised by Victoria de Grazia, Stathis Gourgouris, and Samuel Moyn.
Research interests: History of European Integration, European and Turkish Intellectual History, History of State Planning, Nationalism.
