Feryaz OkacliFeryaz Okacli
Ankara, Turkey

Associate Professor of Government

Professor Okacli says Skidmore is an "amazing place to teach" because professors and students are "committed to the pursuit of knowledge in a free environment." One of his favorite courses to teach is "Nationalism and Politics in the Middle East," because this area of the world has seen it all. "Just about anything political science attempts to explain as a discipline can be studied in the Middle East," he says.

Pushkala PrasadPushkala Prasad
Chennai, India

Professor of Management and Business

Professor Prasad has taught in her home country of India, as well as in Canada, the U.S., Sweden, Finland, and the U.K. She says, "I bring this background to the classroom—my international business course, for example, in which I introduce cultural variation and blindness. Sometimes my students have a hard time defending American business practices abroad when they see them through another culture's eyes."
