English Literature

Middle East Technical University

Rahime Çokay Nebioğlu is a PhD candidate in English Literature at the Middle East Technical University, Turkey. Her research interests include critical theory, political theory, continental philosophy, comparative literature and contemporary fiction. Her current research project draws heavily upon the intersection of Deleuzian philosophy and dystopian fiction. It seeks to develop an alternative conception of dystopia in the light of Deleuzian philosophy, and revolves around the question of whether there could be lines of flight from the here-and-now dystopia.

She has been recently awarded a Fulbright grant, and is currently studying in the Literature Program at Duke University, USA. She obtained her MA in English Literature from Ankara University, Turkey, writing a dissertation on the interaction between postmodernism and historiography and its reflection in literature. She has been working as a research assistant at Gazi University, Turkey, since 2013.

In recent years, she has taught courses on philosophy, critical theory, and the historiography and theory of the novel. She is a member of the ACLA, SUS, ESSE and other organizations in the fields of English and comparative literature. She continues to enroll in many international conferences, seminars and certificate programs and publish articles in international refereed journals on English studies and comparative literature.
