Zeynep Oguz

Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Humanities at Northwestern University and the Department of Anthropology.

Cultural, political, environmental anthropologist.

Located at the intersection of environmental anthropology, political geography, and Science and Technology Studies (STS), my work examines the ways in which politics and earth intersect. My current project examines how oil, petroleum geology, and energy infrastructures have played a role in the making and unmaking of territorial formations in Turkey, especially in relation to the Kurdish and Cyprus issues. My articles are forthcoming in Political Geography and several edited collections. I teach on postcolonial science and technology studies; multispecies anthropology; time and temporality; space and power; and energy humanities. My new project will investigate how geological formations are entangled with political formations in the Global South.
