Programs and Research Coordinator, CESTA
Master of Arts, German Studies, Stanford University
Bachelor of Arts, Comparative Literature, Stanford University

Eren is currently the Programs and Research Coordinator at CESTA, overseeing center, events, and communication management, developing long and short term strategies and projects to sustain faculty, campus, and off-campus relationships, and assisting with the center's day-to-day physical, digital, logistical, and research needs. I have a B.A. in Comparative Literature and an M.A. in German Studies from Stanford University. During my student years at Stanford, I was a Senior Research Fellow in the Text Technologies Program, the Assistant Director for the Stanford Manuscript Sciences initiative, and a research and editorial intern at Clayman Institute for Gender Research. My academic endeavors have been lead by my interest in poetry and poetics; questions about subjectivity, authorship, personhood, and literary institutionalization; 20th century works' relationship to and reception and imagination of medieval aesthetics; and approaches to text as a material, environmental, and digital object. These days, I am thinking about the historical, imagined, and methodological connections between design-thinking, public and digital artworks, and the fields of humanities and literature. In my free time, I love watching movies, learning new languages, taking long walks, and needle-felting.

If you have any questions about CESTA, CESTA programming, events, and research, Digital Humanities at and outside of Stanford, my research interests, or anything else, feel free to email me at eeyurek [at] stanford.edu (eeyurek[at]stanford[dot]edu) or book a meeting with me through the link on this page.
