Gökce Yurdakul is Georg Simmel Professor of Diversity and Social Conflict at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Chair in the Department of Foundations of Migration Research at the Berlin Institute of Migration and Integration Research (BIM). Her areas of interest are gender, immigration, citizenship, specifically issues of Muslim women in Western Europe. Her research was funded by national and international grants. She was a visiting scholar at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at the Harvard University in 2019, where she was affiliated with the Comparative Inequalities and Inclusion Research Cluster. Her most recent book is The Headscarf Debates: Conflict in National Narratives (2014, Stanford University Press, with Anna Korteweg). Yurdakul and Korteweg started a new book-length project on how the politics of non-belonging are produced in the European media. Yurdakul is an associate editor for the leading feminist journal, Social Politics: International Studies in Gender, State & Society.
