Annika Marlen Hinze is an assistant professor of political science at Fordham University and director of Fordham's Urban Studies program. Her research interests lie at the intersection of urban development, ethnic and racial identity, poverty, and democratic decision-making.
Her first book, Turkish Berlin: Integration Policy and Urban Space was published in 2013 in the University of Minnesota Press’ Globalization and Community book series. The book addresses the process of immigrant incorporation via placemaking in the urban immigrant neighborhood and combines policy analysis and spatial theory approaches. Hinze has also written and published on nationalism and identity, second-generation heritage migrants in Istanbul, and urban development. She is currently working on a second book project on large-scale urban development projects and democratic decision-making in Berlin, New York, and Vancouver.
