Islam, religious scholars, education, knowledge, mysticism, mourning and death, alternative modernities, gender.

Research

My thesis explored the scholarly world of a cosmopolitan collection of Muslim academics based in a recently established Islamic post-graduate institute in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. My aim was to document how their scholarly ways of knowing and learning are constructed and experienced in daily practice.
