Ayten Gündoğdu, assistant professor of political science, joined Barnard’s faculty in 2008. At Barnard she teaches courses on political theory and human rights.
Professor Gündoğdu’s current research centers on critical approaches to human rights, contemporary problems of citizenship, political and ethical dilemmas of international migration. She is currently working on a book manuscript that offers a critical analysis of human rights; the book focuses on the contemporary problems and rights struggles of migrants and engages with the work of twentieth-century political theorist Hannah Arendt.

Mellon Foundation, and several other fellowships and grants from the College of Liberal Arts and ICGC-MacArthur Program at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
