Pınar Ertör Akyazı will study the interactions among values, preferences, and institutions that aim to address global climate change. More specifically, she will conduct economic experiments on carbon pricing (carbon taxes versus carbon markets) to investigate the behavioral responses these institutions invoke.
Banu Karaca received her PhD from The Graduate Center, The City University of New York. Her manuscript “Decivilizing Art: Cultural Policy and Nationalism in Turkey and Germany” examines the entrenchment of art in state violence based on extensive research in the art worlds of Istanbul and Berlin. Some of her recent publications interrogate the politics of intercultural exchange programs in the EU, freedom of expression in the arts, the visualization of gendered memories of war and political violence, and visual literacy.
