Salim Aykut Öztürk
Danish Institute of Study Abroad
Join us for the book launch of Salim Aykut Öztürk’s new book ‘Mobility and Armenian Belonging in Contemporary Turkey: Migratory Routes and the Meaning of the Local’. In his talk, Dr Öztürk will present case studies and data collected over the course of almost 10 years, and discuss how his book draws on this research to trace themes of migration, human movement, community-making and the conditions that facilitate mobility and place-making.
Dr. Salim Aykut Öztürk (PhD in Anthropology, University College London) has quantitative and qualitative research experience in different postcolonial contexts including Jerusalem, London and the wider West African region. His first book "Mobility and Armenian Belonging in Contemporary Turkey" is (partly) based on his doctoral research in Armenia, Georgia and Turkey. Öztürk holds an MA in Migration and Diaspora Studies from SOAS and a BA in Political Science from Boğaziçi University. He is a former Hrant Dink Foundation fellow and was involved in civil society initiatives between Armenia and Turkey. Currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark, he continues teaching a variety of anthropology/sociology courses.
