About Yakup Deniz

I am a cultural anthropology PhD student at Binghamton University. My research is at an intersection of anthropology, education and STS. I conducted ethnographic fieldwork for two years with two different course-based undergraduate research programs (abbreviated as CUREs) in an Upstate New York public university. In my dissertation, based on my fieldwork, I am planning to focus on CUREs, emerging research pedagogies, neoliberalization of/in higher education and limitations of neoliberal critique.
