Sevin teaches world history through the lens of food for the Honors Program. Her classes meet at Brightwater: A Center for the Study of Food, NWACC's new culinary school, and at local restaurants. In these non-traditional environments, students examine different historical processes while considering how food systems and food culture shape the human experience.

Sevin has a Ph.D. in Modern Middle East/World history from the University of Akron in Ohio. Her research focuses on gender, nationalism, popular culture, and state-formation in the Kurdish regions of the Middle East---particularly Turkey. She studied electronic media and journalism at the University of Cincinnati as an undergraduate. She transferred to Kent State University, and earned a B.A. and M.A. in European history. In addition to teaching world history, Sevin works as the Global Studies degree coordinator at NWACC, and she leads a study abroad program in Greece.
