Profile

Biography

Ayse studied the new social class structures of post-industrial societies in her PhD research. She distinguished two new classes (the social and cultural specialists versus technocrats) within the middle class and published on their social mobility, voting behavior, and lifestyles. She then obtained funding from NORFACE for her ‘2000 Families: Migration Histories of Turks in Europe’ project to study the enduring impact of migration on migrants and their descendants for the period 2009 and 2015. She has been a co-applicant in another NORFACE project “Causes and Consequences of Early Socio-Cultural Integration Processes Among New Immigrants in Europe (SCIP)”. She is currently establishing research links between Turkey and the UK on Social Policies and Migration with a British Council Newton REL grant. Her current research interests mainly comprise stratification and social mobility, international migration, religion, life course, families and gender. She has been a visiting scholar in the Department of Social Policy at London School of Economics and Political Sciences; TUBITAK visiting scholar in the Department of Sociology at Istanbul Sehir University. Ayse is also affiliated to the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) and to the Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration (CReAM) at the University College London. More information on her research on 2000 Families: 2000families.org Her SCIP project: http://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/153339.html Ayse would like to supervise students in areas covering her research interests: inequalities and social mobility, international migration, religion, life course, families and gender.
