Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Arizona State University

I am a cultural anthropologist with an interest in Muslim cultures and social practices in South Asia and the Middle East. My research focuses on how colonialism and global capitalism disrupt and restructure the ideas and practices of community and social ethics, particularly in urban environments. My primary concern is to explore the Islamic values and lived ethics of peaceful living and am co-leading a project on "people's peace" at Arizona State University.
