"Turkey" with Lisel Hintz, Johns Hopkins University
Dr. Lisel Hintz is Assistant Professor of International Relations and European Studies at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies. After receiving her Ph.D. in Political Science from George Washington University she was a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University and a Visiting Assistant Professor at Barnard College, Columbia University. Her first book, Identity Politics Inside Out: National Identity Contestation and Foreign Policy in Turkey (Oxford University Press, 2018) investigates how contestation over various forms of identity (e.g. ethnic, religious, gender, regional) spills over from domestic politics to shape, and be shaped by, foreign policy.
Her current book project examines state-society struggles over identity in Turkey through the lens of pop culture. Dr. Hintz's work is forthcoming or published in Survival, European Journal of International Relations, International Journal of Turkish Studies, Project on Middle East Political Science Series, and Turkish Policy Quarterly. She contributes to Foreign Policy, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and BBC World Service, as well as to government, think tank, and academic discussions on Turkey's increasing authoritarianism, civil society struggles, foreign policy shifts, and Kurdish and Alevi issues.
