Potential Doctoral Proposals
I have supervised over thirty research students on a wide variety of subjects, including sociology of religion, religion, place and space, modern Hindu movements, religion and public life, gender and religion, religion and violence, and religious identities. At present I supervise students working on non/religious discourse, internal migration and religion in Turkey, the roles of family and gender in terrorism, utopian movements, and liturgical change.
I welcome applications from potential doctoral candidates researching religious and secular relationships; religion, diasporas and migration; Hindu and Sikh diaspora communities; media and religion; ideologies and security threats; and from those wishing to apply spatial approaches to studying religion.
