Turcotte holds a joint appointment with the Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program and is affiliated with the American Studies Program, the Human Rights Institute, the Institute for African American Studies, and the International Studies Program. She teaches in the fields of international relations, political theory and feminist studies with a focus on interdisciplinary approaches to global politics. Dr. Turcotte’s book-length project Petro-Sexual Politics: The Geopolitics ofKnowledge, Violence and Transnational Justice examines discourses of terrorism and gender violence, international security and human rights within U.S.-Nigerian petroleum relations.
