Overview

Key Features

The Cultural Studies program from Sabanci University fosters an open intellectual atmosphere where students and academic staff engage with ongoing debates on critical issues of cultural politics in Turkey and around the world in the era of neo-liberal globalism. 

The program’s core staff are involved in a wide range of research projects and public platforms, both national and international. Particular strengths of the program include ethnographic and interpretive methodologies, and collaboration across disciplines on the following research themes:     

  • Transnational mobility, ethnic identities and citizenship
  • Gender, sexuality, intimacy
  • Ideology and politics of representation
  • Memory studies and oral history

Students in the Master’s program can pursue two degree pathways. All students are expected to complete one year of intensive seminars. During the second year, students who are interested in research or academic careers can opt to work on a research theme of their own choice, under the supervision of a faculty member. Such students are expected to write a well-argued thesis, subject to evaluation by a thesis committee.
