Selin Ozulkulu is a recent graduate of Williams College with a master’s degree in History of Art. She earned her B.A. in Psychology and History of Art and Architecture from Brown University. Her research interests include the reception of antiquity and cross-cultural contact between Western Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean. Under the auspice of the Fulbright Greece-Turkey Joint Research Award, Selin will research Theodor Makridi Bey (1872-1940), who was a pivotal figure for the Ottoman Empire, Turkey, and Greece as an archaeologist, an art historian, and a museum professional. Selin’s project, “Theodor Makridi and Uncovering Cultural Heritage,” will explore Makridi’s museological ideals and practice both at the Istanbul Archaeology Museum and the Benaki Museum. This focus is part of a larger project to understand how the development of new museums played a critical role in establishing cultural heritage and national identity for both countries. Selin will be affiliated with the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens while in Greece and Boğaziçi University while in Turkey.
