I found this image in this news article particularly notable because it ran counter to what I was expecting. The wide-spread (and valid, in my opinion) critique I am used to is that local universities have become caught within imperialist, neoliberal regimes of power. But to see this caricature image which the news article reports as: "Melih Bulu's Counsel Volkan Gazioğlu shared a caricature depicting Boğaziçi University academics putting up an American flag on the university's iconic lawn in their robes, the implication being that the protests were foreign-funded" was particularly striking because it was the university turning the usual critique back against the protesting students.
