PhD Candidate, Literary Studies

Degrees:Degrees: B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey; MA in World Literatures and Cultures, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada

Between 2012 and 2014, I worked for the Interlangues language school (in association with the Department of Foreign Affairs) as a Turkish teacher for Canadian diplomats. I have also taught Turkish at the University of Ottawa, Centre for Continuing Education. I am a certified translator with the Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario (ATIO).

I am currently studying global contemporary literatures. My research interests include postcolonial and transnational cities in literature. Graduation is targeted for 2020.

I love the Cultural Mediations program at ICSLAC. I love teaching. I also enjoy literature trivia, and write quite a few of them myself.

Emails about anything above are welcome: You may also find me on Twitter @LaleLisait. If you wish to chat about the role of literature in decolonizing urban centres, I will buy the drinks.
