Research Interest

My research interests lie at the intersection of historical sociology, political economy and International Relations (IR). More specifically, I engage with Historical Sociology and Political Economy to address three particular and interrelated questions in IR. The first is the question of the origins and development of the modern international order, with a particular focus on the Ottoman Empire, Turkey and the wider Middle Eastern region. The second is the question of how to theorize and historicize ‘late modernization’ and ‘late industrialization’ in the global political economy. The third relates to the problem of ‘Eurocentrism’, i.e. the question of how to conceptualize the constitutive impact of non-Western peoples on the origins and development of the modern international order.
