Berfin is an ethusiastic teacher who considers students as active learning partners. She is experienced in teaching at culturally diverse settings and interested in making individual and cultural differences as sources to facilitate deep-learning.
Berfin has completed her PhD at the University of Essex in the Department of Sociology in 2013. Her PhD explored the representation of nationalism and masculinity in a popular long running Turkish TV series and its reception by its audiences in the context of their gendered experiences.

This research explores Alevi media within the transnational context and building a public sphere engaging Alevi audience from different local and national contexts.
