Bio: I'm currently the Welfare&Diversity Sabbatical Officer at Goldsmiths University of London. I am re-running for the same position, and have experienced being both a student and a representative at Goldsmiths. In 2014 I completed my Masters in Gender, Media and Culture. My research interests include Medieval Japan and Shunga, Anime and Manga and Japanese popular culture. I am particularly interested in looking at the gendered body in Japanese pornographic anime and horror through a Foucauldian framework in order to analyse the West's gaze upon a world it attempts to categorize. My politics are intersectional, queer, feminist, anti-racist... I am a working class, Turkish Cypriot, queer, disabled woman and activist. I am currently running for Welfare and Diversity Officer at Goldsmiths because I want to impart the care and support that has been given me through some of the most trying times of my academic experience. Figures who inspire me academically and politically include Audre Lorde, Selma James, Southall Black Sisters, Gloria Anzaldua, and … Nicki Minaj ;D (to name a few). “There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not live single-issue lives.” – Audre Lorde If you see me on campus please feel free to approach me. I love meeting new people.
