Aslı İkizoğlu Erensü

Aslı İkizoğlu Erensü is currently teaching at Sabancı University, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. She holds a PhD in Geography from the University of Minnesota, and an MA in Sociology from the University of Essex. She is interested in regimes of mobility and politics of humanitarianism, and has worked on (i) how refugees are constituted as subjects of intervention at the intersection of the two, and (ii) how the experience of asylum is locally produced in Turkish cities. She has published on these issues in both Turkish and English journals, including Citizenship Studies and Journal of Refugee Studies. In her current research, she focuses on the politics of motherhood in the recent trend of outmigration from Turkey, and questions how ideals and practices of motherhood impact women’s political subjectivities.
