Günel Appointed Postdoctoral Fellow

Posted by on Jan 28, 2012

Rice has named Gökçe Günel, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Anthropology at Cornell University, the Cultures of Energy Postdoctoral Fellow for the 2012-13 academic year. Günel grew up in Istanbul, Turkey, and moved to the United States in 2007 to pursue her graduate studies. Her dissertation project focuses on the development of the renewable energy and clean technology industry in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, specifically by concentrating on their flagship company, Masdar. In her dissertation, Günel interrogates the ways in which imaginaries of climate change mitigation as a commercially viable enterprise are articulated and experienced both at a personal level and at the level of project management. By studying how emergent technology, knowledge, and governance of renewable energy and clean technology propose a potential reorganization of sociotechnical relations in an oil-rich country, she seeks to contribute to the growing corpus of literature on the social studies of energy.

Under this appointment, Günel will participate in the Mellon-Sawyer Seminar “Cultures of Energy: Global Economies and Local Communities,” help to organize a campus speaker series, and teach a new undergraduate course on the energy humanities. Congratulations, Gökçe, and welcome to Rice!
