We extend a warm welcome to Müge TELCİ ÖZBEK who has been officially nominated as a Management Committee Member for Turkey.

In 2018, Müge Özbek received her PhD at Boğaziçi University in Turkey (Atatürk Institute for Modern Turkish History). In her dissertation titled “Single, Poor Women in Istanbul, 1850–1915: Prostitution, Sexuality, and Female Labor”, she focuses on the urban experience of self-supporting women as significant agents of urban change in Istanbul between 1850 and 1915. Adopting a gender-specific perspective, the study further suggests a rethinking of concepts such as public order, mobility, and labor.
