Student at the Department of Political Science and International Relations, TED University, Turkey
I am Soner Emec, from Turkey. I am graduating this summer from TED University in Ankara, the Department of Political Science and International Relations. I have recently been offered a place for a two-year Master’s Programme in History and Oriental Studies at the University of Bologna. During my graduate studies in Bologna, I intend to work on advancing a theoretically rich understanding of postcolonialism. I am particularly interested in studying post-colonial thought, post-colonial imagery, and subaltern studies from a Gramscian approach. My long-term academic plans involve pursuing further studies on some of the fundamental issues within the framework of subaltern and postcolonial studies. In addition to my academic life, I have been part of some civil society organizations such as UcuncuYol that I contributed to it by writing on the Turkish political system and ideology.
