Annika Marlen Hinze is an Assistant Professor of Political Science and the Director of the Urban Studies Program at Fordham University – Rose Hill campus. Hinze is also an Associated Researcher at the Center for Metropolitan Studies at TU Berlin, and a non-resident fellow on Global Cities with the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Her research and teaching focus on urban politics, the politics of immigration (in the U.S. and Germany), qualitative methods, urban economic development, poverty, and minority politics. Professor Hinze’s first book, Turkish Berlin: Integration Policy and Urban Space (University of Minnesota Press, 2013) compares integration policy and lived integration of second generation Turk-Germans in two Berlin neighborhoods. She finds that the neighborhood itself functions as an important intermediate identifier between the parents’ homeland and the second generation’s country of birth for the “lost” second generation. Hinze identifies the neighborhood, as well as “lived” strategies of immigrants as a crucial means of identity formation and place-making in the integration process. Hinze has also published in the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism, and co-edited a special issue on North American Urban Politics in Urban Research and Practice (2013).
Her next book manuscript analyses large-scale urban development projects in Berlin, New York City, and Vancouver.
Dr. Hinze has studied English, North American Studies, and Modern History at Humboldt University and Free University in Berlin, and holds an MA and PhD in Political Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
