Biography

Alexis Artaud de La Ferrière obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of Sheffield and continued his postgraduate studies at the University of Cambridge, where he wrote his doctoral thesis on the politics of education in Algeria during the Algerian War of Independence. Before coming to SOAS, Alexis held postdoctoral positions at the Centre for the Study of International Relations of the Middle East and North Africa (CIRMENA) at Cambridge and at the Groupe Sociétés Religions Laïcités (GSRL) at the CNRS in Paris, where he retains an affiliation as Associate Researcher. 

Alexis's research draws on the tradition of political sociology, combining political theory with ethnographic research. His work has focused on the tension between religious and national identifications in the modern world, migration and religion, and the relationship between formal educational systems and state governance. He is particularly interested in the role of religion in French domestic politics and in its foreign affairs in the Middle East and North Africa.
