Nilüfer Göle

Nilüfer Göle is Professor of Sociology at École des hautes études en sciences sociales, Paris. Her work centers on Islamic visibility in European public spaces and the debates it engenders on religious and cultural difference. Göle’s sociological approach aims to open up a new reading of modernity from a non-Western perspective and a broader critique of Eurocentrism in the definitions of secular modernity. Among her latest publications are The Daily Lives of Muslims: Islam and Public Confrontation in Contemporary Europe (2017) and the essay “Le global et la gauche: des convergences sont-elles possibles? ” (The global and the left: Are common grounds possible?) in La gauche globale. Hier, aujourd’hui, demain (2017), edited by Immanuel Wallerstein.
