My work as predominantly focused on gendered depictions on-screen, nationalist interventions, and television studies in Turkey. Although my work mainly focuses on body politics and the implications of nationalism on-screen, I have a broad array of research interests.I have recently published an article on the representations of disabled bodies and freakshows in circus themed television programming and have an upcoming chapter on the employment of capitalist strategies in animation films currently in peer-review, pending publication.
