Portrait of Zeyno Ustun
Postdoctoral Fellow, Center for Media at Risk
Lecturer, Annenberg School for Communication

Zeyno Ustun received her Ph.D. from the department of Sociology at the New School for Social Research where she was a Fellow of the Integrative Ph.D. Fellowship program, a Teaching Fellow at the Eugene Lang College, and a researcher at Graph Commons. Ustun’s research begins with the political and legal aftermath of the Gezi Park Resistance, a nationwide networked movement that erupted in Istanbul, Turkey and quickly spread to the rest of the country via the tactical and strategic utilization of the Internet. Ustun aims to map the historical, technical, and bureaucratic processes and the social and political conditions that facilitated not only the Gezi Resistance in Turkey and other networked movements of the 21st century but also the rising influence of state surveillance.

Zeyno Ustun is a postdoctoral fellow with the Center for Media at Risk.
