Dr. Deniz Gündoğan İbrişim is a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Gender and Women’s Studies Center of Excellence (SU Gender) at Sabancı University. 

Currently, in addition to her MSCA fellowship at SU Gender, she serves as the official Management Committee Member for Turkey of the Cost Action Project: CA20105 - Slow Memory: Transformative Practices for Times of Uneven and Accelerating Change (2021-2025). She also acts as the Grant Writing Coordinator in this action.


As a comparatist literary scholar by training, her research lies at the intersection of Anglophone postcolonial literature, Middle Eastern literature, cultural trauma and memory studies, and environmental humanities. In addition to a comparative focus on trauma and violence representation in postcolonial Anglophone and Middle Eastern literatures, her research interests include gender and sexuality studies, narrative theory, feminist and queer narratology, animism, and critical posthumanism.


Gündoğan İbrişim’s research and teaching is shaped by values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. She is committed to making higher education accessible, inspiring, and a tool for social justice for all students. In addition to her fields of study, she also incorporates her background in translation studies into her teaching practice and understands translation as a vibrant tool to make cross-border traveling of knowledge production possible.

She is the co-author of Gaflet: Modern Türkçe Edebiyatın Cinsiyetçi Sinir Uçları (2019, Metis).
