Each week we introduce one of the keynote speakers for the ENIS/MIDA Summer School “Spoken Images of/in Islam,” which takes place from 5-9 July 2021.
Dr. Berfin Emre Cetin is Senior Lecturer in the Communications and Media programme at London College of Communication (LCC).
Berfin has completed her PhD at the University of Essex in the Department of Sociology in 2013. Her PhD explored the representation of nationalism and masculinity in a popular long running Turkish TV series and its reception by its audiences in the context of their gendered experiences.
Her later research on Alevi television and transnationalism has been awarded Newton International Fellowship by the British Academy (2016-2019). This research explores Alevi media within the transnational context and building a public sphere engaging Alevi audience from different local and national contexts.
Before joining LCC, Berfin has worked at Anadolu University, Hacettepe University, University of Essex, Regent’s University London and LSE.
She has published various articles on the Turkish media in European Journal of Communication, European Journal of Cultural Studies International Journal of Communication and Media, Culture & Society. She is the author of the book The Paramilitary Hero in Turkish Television.
