- Dr. Döşemeci is an intellectual and cultural historian of modern Europe and the Middle-East. His latest project explores modern social struggle in the transatlantic world through a kinetic register. It details the emergence of an economy of movement in the 18th century transatlantic world and uncovers the practices and mentalities of disruption that have sought to arrest this economy ever since.
- His previous research explored the ways Turks and Europeans have approached, understood, and reacted to one another over the course of the world's most recent globalization. Dr. Döşemeci 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, was published in 2014 through Cambridge University Press.
