  • Mehmet Dosemeci is an intellectual and political historian of modern Europe and the Turkish Republic. His work to date has explored the ambivalent ways that Turks and Europeans have approached, understood, and reacted to one another over the course of the world's most recent globalization. He has published on various aspects of this entangled history, examining: Turkey's relations with the European Union; development, dependency, and state directed industrialization; Turkish anti-westernism; and Turkey's place in the cold-war Mediterranean. His book, Debating Turkish Modernity: Civilization, Nationalism, and the EEC, will be published in Fall 2013 through Cambridge University Press.
  • Mehmet Dosemeci is just beginning a new research project exploring the ephemeral instances of radical democracy within Europe and the Middle-East, providing historical context for the popular uprisings that have mushroomed across the Mediterranean basin since 2011.
