Research overview

My PhD research employs an ethnographic methodological approach to examine the experiences of female students and teachers at Islamic seminaries for women in the UK. More broadly, I am interested in women's work in the development of religious knowledge and communities, and trying to understand what this work means to these women from their own perspectives and in their specific social contexts.
