Ceyda is a doctoral student in Social and Cultural Analysis program of Concordia. She is interested in the questions posed through actor-network theory and the -so-called- material turn. She is critical of sociology’s assumption of the human as the center of social relations. So, her PhD project works along the lines of machine agency, and she wonders whether and how it is possible to talk about nonhuman sociality, especially in the context of artificial intelligence research. She completed her Bachelor’s and M.Sc. degrees at Middle East Technical University’s Department of Sociology. She studied construction of common sense knowledge and everyday reality in World of Warcraft for her M.Sc. thesis.
