Current Research

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of English and Creative Writing at Lancaster University, where I previously completed my MA in Contemporary Literary Studies. My research aims to theorise the term Turkish Gothic in relation to Globalgothic term with a particular focus on the representations of national identity, collective memory and social anxiety in Turkish Gothic narratives from 1923 to present as well as the image of the Turkish and/or Oriental identity as barbaric and evil in Western Gothic narratives. Other areas of interest include Islamic Gothic, folklore, vampire fiction, Gothic Sci-Fi, contemporary Gothic in film and TV.
