Profile

My research expertise is in the field of the religious, social, and intellectual history of the pre-modern Arabic- and Persian-speaking Muslim Middle East. Broadly speaking, I am interested in the interrelations between religion, culture, and society. In particular, I explore how religious discourses are deployed to shape society and to advance the interests of groups and individuals. I also study the production and circulation of texts, examining what they tell us about their authors and readers. Finally, I am interested in the history of the discipline of Religious Studies in general, and Islamic Studies in particular, as practiced in Euro-American academia in the last two centuries.
