Savcı completed her Ph.D. at University of Southern California in sociology and gender studies in 2011. She joined SF State in 2013 after a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Sexualities Project at Northwestern University. Her areas of interest include gender; sexualities; queer, feminist and social theory; globalization and transnationality; cultural sociology and epistemology. Savcı’s book, Queer in Translation: Paradoxes of Westernization and Sexual Others in the Turkish Nation, traces the travel and translation of Western concepts that surround discourses on non-normative genders and sexualities such as gender identity, sexual orientation, hate crimes and LGBT rights to the context of contemporary Turkey.
