Dr. Gülay Türkmen

Curriculum Vitae

Gülay Türkmen is a political sociologist and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Göttingen’s Institute of Sociology. Her work examines how certain historical, cultural, and political developments inform questions of belonging and identity-formation in multi-ethnic and multi-religious societies. Her research and teaching interests stand at the intersection of politics and religion, as they relate to questions of migration, nationalism, citizenship, and inclusion/exclusion in multicultural contexts. She has published in several academic outlets including the Annual Review of Sociology, Qualitative Sociology, Sociological Quarterly, and Nations and Nationalism. She occasionally writes public sociology pieces for outlets such as Jadaliyya, Open Democracy, and ResetDoc. Her book, Under the Banner of Islam? Turks, Kurds and the Limits of Religious Unity is forthcoming with the Oxford University Press in January 2021.
