Person

I am professor of Islamology at CTR where I teach at all levels, undergraduate and master's, and supervise ph.d. candidates.
My main research interest is what happens to Islam in the present time. How do Muslims - in different places, from different social positions - understand their religion? Most of my research have dealt with the situation in Sweden, but I also have a keen interest in how Muslim scholars in the Arab world relate to and understand popular Culture and the consumer society, not least popular music. Since I research Muslims in Sweden I have also been involved in the study of the representations of Muslims in Sweden.
