Ipek S. Burnett

Ipek S. Burnett, PhD, is a Turkish-American author who provides a depth psychological critique of social, cultural, and political issues. Based in San Francisco, she works with human rights organizations and writes novels in Turkish, her native language.


Born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, Burnett came to the United States to get a bachelor’s degree in Modern Culture & Media and International Relations from Brown University. She received a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies. She got her second masters and doctorate degree in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, where she was the recipient of OPUS Archive’s New Mythos Grant for Archetypal Psychology.

Though her academic work remains rooted in the field of psychology, Burnett’s published articles in peer-review journals and books have always had a cultural and critical edge, expanding on a range of topics—xenophobia to racism, militarism to materialism. She is a contributing writer at CounterPunch, where her pieces focus on American culture and politics. In Turkey, Burnett is represented by Yapı Kredi Yayınları.
