Alumna Ozlem Goner '12 PhD Publishes New Book

Ozlem Goner UMass Amherst Sociology Alumna

Sociology alumna Ozlem Goner ’12 PhD recently had her book, "Turkish National Identity and Its Outsiders," published by Routledge (2017).

The book examines the ways in which states and nations are constructed and legitimated through defining and managing outsiders. Focusing on Turkey and the municipality of Dersim – a region that has historically combined different outsider identities, including Armenian, Kurdish, and Alevi identities – Goner explores the remembering, transformation and mobilization of everyday relations of power and the manner in which relationships with the state shape both outsider identities and the conception of the nation itself.
