Dr. Michael Carver, Instructor (Ph.D, Bowling Green State University, 2011). Dr. Carver has research interests in the relationship between the United States and Turkey, as well as world and American history. His dissertation, “A Correct and Progressive Road: U.S.-Turkish Relations, 1945-1964,” provides a greater understanding of the challenges inherent in the formation and implementation of U.S. policy in Turkey at a time when the Turks embarked on multiparty politics and a determined campaign to become a modern and distinctly European nation through ambitious economic development programs. Dr. Carver has taught classes in both American and World history, as well as a class on European history in the postwar period. In addition to instructing at BGSU, Dr. Carver has also taught at Lourdes College and Southern State Community College.
