Fields of Research: 

My main field of research is the modernization of the Muslim world in applying theories of world society, historical political sociology, and the sociology of knowledge. In thematic terms, I have conducted studies on the relationship between religion and politics, modern state formation, as well as war and conflict in the Middle East. This research has been partly funded by grants from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, German Academic Exchange Service, the Danish Social Science Research Council and Carlsberg Foundation. My current research project The Modern Muslim Subjectivities Project received Funding from the Danish Council for Independent Research and VELUX Foundation (http://www.sdu.dk/en/Om_SDU/Institutter_centre/ih/Forskning/Forskningsprojekter/MMSP). Since August 2013 I have been a partner at the Centre for Resolution of International Conflicts (CRIC; cric.ku.dk). I am the editor of the book series The Modern Muslim World at Palgrave MacMillan, New York.
