Professional Information

Eva-Marie Dubuisson received her PhD in Linguistic Anthropology from the University of Michigan. Support for her doctoral research on the oral tradition of aitys poetry in Kazakhstan came from Fulbright, Wenner Gren, the Eurasia Program of the Social Science Research Council, and the Institute for the Humanities at UM.  Prior to joining Nazarbayev University, she held a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, and taught as Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Bogazici University, Istanbul.  Dubuisson’s teaching and research interests include expressive culture and performance; semantic and pragmatic meaning; linguistic anthropology and discourse analysis; methods and ethics in social science research, and the politics, history, ethnography, ecology and geographies of Eurasia. Her writing and research often center on themes of socio-political accountability and worldview, as well as oral tradition and ancestral dialogues in Kazakh culture, and how these emerge in different forms of story and encounter.  What kind of social alignments and possibilities are made possible in interaction?  Her recent research has been supported by a Marie Curie CIG Fellowship from the European Commission, a BAGEP fellowship from the Science Academy, Turkey, a short term research fellowship from the National Council for Eurasian and East European Research in the U.S., and by multiple grants from Nazarbayev University.
