She studied in Istanbul, at the universities of Bogazici and Bilgi, at Ohio University, and completed her PhD in digital media at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Samanci’s new graphic novel, Not Here but Everywhere, follows two characters in parallel: a 40-year-old American professor of art history teaching in Istanbul, and a 25-year-old Turkish graduate student at a small college in Athens, Ohio.
