I am Burcu Baykurt, a Ph.D. student at Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, studying political communications, media sociology, comparative research, activism, and communications policy.

Prior to that, I completed a master’s degree in Media, Culture and Communication at NYU, studied Political Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London and Political Science at Bogazici University, Istanbul. You can find an overview of my CV here.

This blog captures my thoughts on politics, culture, media, political communications, and anything else that captures my fancy.
