Biography

Kerem Nisancioglu is a Lecturer in International Relations. His research focuses on the relationship between Eurocentrism, capitalism, colonialism and race. His co-authored book (with Alexander Anievas) How the West Came to Rule: The Geopolitical Origins of Capitalism (Pluto Press, 2015) explored these themes through an examination of the origins of capitalism. How the West Came to Rule was the winner of the BISA International Political Economy Group Annual Book Prize in 2016 and the Best Book Award of the International Political Sociology section of the ISA in 2017.

 

Kerem’s current research focuses on the role of colonialism and racialisation in the making of modern sovereignty. He is also interested in practices of and struggles against capitalism, colonialism and racism in universities. He is the co-editor (with Gurminder K. Bhambra and Dalia Gebrial) of the volume Decolonising the University (Pluto Press, 2018). He is co-convenor (with Duncan Bell, Nivi Manchanda and Lisa Tilley) of BISA’s Colonial/ Postcolonial/ Decolonial Working Group. He also blogs at The Disorder of Things.

 

Kerem received his DPhil from the University of Sussex in 2014 for his thesis The Ottomans in Europe: Uneven and Combined Development and Eurocentrism.
