Research

research overview

  • My research interests probe important contemporary questions such as modernity, religion, and the role of media in shaping and reflecting modern religious identities among Muslims in the Middle East and in diaspora. My work on diasporic media, Islam and popular culture has appeared in various journal publications and book volumes.‚Äč I'm also the associate director of the Center for Media, Religion and Culture, which specializes in research, teaching and public outreach at the intersection of media and religion. My columns have appeared in many publications, including The Guardian, Salon, Forbes Magazine, The Huffington Post, Open Democracy, Yes Magazine, Geo, and Religion Dispatches. I am currently writing a book, Unmosquing Islam: Muslim Media and Alternative Modernity, which explores how Muslims engage, through their own media production, modernity as a source of both contention and identification.
