Biography

Before joining the Sociology Department in 2006, Ayse studied on a project about changing class structure in the post-industrial societies at the research school ICS (the Netherlands). In this study, she has updated the EGP class schema (also known as Goldthorpe-schema) by distinguishing two 'new' classes of social and cultural specialists and two 'old' classes of technocrats within the middle class.
