Current Research Interests
Currently, I am interested in researching the role of sports and soccer in particular in the making of modern Turkey. I explore the links between sports, nationalism, democracy, Westernization, and anti-Westernism. I investigate the entanglements of politics and development of sports institutions as hubs of inter-elite cooperation and conflict as well as solidarity and conflict across class divisions. I am also interested in exploring the global and Europewide development of sports governing bodies and economy in the post-war era.
