I am interested in receiving graduate applications within the following thematic areas: religious knowledge and movements, also with regard to media and the public sphere, globalization and inter-religious dynamics; sociology and anthropology of Islam; aboriginal spirituality; political theology; charisma and the state; other comparable areas within religious studies and the sociology and anthropology of religion, to be discussed (all of the above areas, both in history and in the present).


Armando Salvatore is a sociologist and a scholar of comparative religion. He has taught and researched at Humboldt University Berlin, University of Naples 'L’Orientale,' National University of Singapore, University of Leipzig and Australian National University, Canberra. He is the author of The Sociology of Islam: Knowledge, Power and Civility (Wiley Blackwell, 2016) and the chief editor of The Wiley-Blackwell History of Islam (Wiley Blackwell, 2018).
