Życiorys

Dr. Latife Akyüz received her PhD from Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara in 2013, with the dissertation titled “Ethnicity and Gender Dynamics of Living in Borderlands: The Case of Hopa-Turkey”. She has held positions as a visiting scholar at Indiana University (2010), Binghamton University (2011–12) and the Center for Ethnic and Migration Studies, Liège University (2014). She worked as an Assistant Professor at Duzce University from March 2014 until 2016, when she, like many other Academics for Peace, were dismissed from her position. As a result, Dr. Akyuz was forced to flee Turkey and started to work as Philipp Schwartz Fellow at Goethe University (2016-2019). Currently she works as Einstein Fellow at Humboldt University-BIM with her research titled “Trans-Exile Intellectuals: “Continuities and Breaks in Knowledge Production Processes in Transnational Social Space”
