Shaheen explores international studies with the Middle East inside out. His first book is about how Ottoman Islam encountered American Christianity. His second project as a Global Fellow traces violence through a recent massacre in a Kurdish majority town. Titled Accidental Savages, this enterprise offers a local sense of those global moments when our species forgets ‘it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.’ Emrah Shaheen is currently with the University of Florida, where he is teaching classic, novel, and transdisciplinary courses including the Middle East, Ottoman Empire, Islam and Terror, Money and the Bible, U.S. and the World, Istanbul a Global City, International Studies Perspectives, Senior Research Seminar, Turkish Language, and Soccer Culture. Emrah is also a proud black-belt holder in martial arts once going in college the national finals for competing in international Taekwondo championships.
