Gokhan Mulayim is a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology at Boston University. Working primarily at the intersection of economic and cultural sociology, organizations, occupations and work, and urban studies, he studies how the so-called extra-economic is translated into the economic. He looks specifically into how peculiar goods and services are being economized, and how the markets for those goods and services are being constructed. Using ethnographic research tools, his dissertation examines the economization of security as a political, social and affective good and service in the market for private security in Istanbul. Mulayim received his B.A. with honors in political science and international relations, and his M.A. in sociology from Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey.
