Gender, Violence, Conflict, and Politics
Tutku is a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention at Binghamton University (SUNY). As a security studies scholar, she is mainly interested in gender, violence, and politics. Her research examines gendered dimensions of conflict and atrocity from an intersectional framework. She is currently working on a book manuscript on Yezidi women's post-genocide experiences of resilience and empowerment, which is based on her fieldwork in Iraqi Kurdistan, Germany, and the United States. Her work has also been published as book chapters and political commentaries in several different outlets. She has recently traveled to Bangladesh to conduct research among displaced Rohingya genocide survivors.
