Personal profile

Curriculum

My work focuses on modern religion and consumer culture. More specifically, I explore the interfaces between class, consumption, market relations, religion and the state in a globalized world. A central focus in this research is the theoretical and empirical focus on the proliferation of religious commodities and services on a global scale. I'm the author of Proper Islamic Consumption: Shopping among the Malays in Modern Malaysia (NIAS Press 2008), The Halal Frontier: Muslim Consumers in a Globalized Market (Palgrave Macmillan 2011), Islam, Standards, and Technoscience: In Global Halal Zones (Routledge 2015), Halal Matters: Islam, Politics and Markets in Global Perspective (Routledge 2015), Religion, Regulation, Consumption: Globalising Kosher and Halal Markets (Manchester University Press 2017) and Kosher and Halal Business Compliance (Routledge 2018) as well as articles in journals and edited volumes. I'm Series Editor on Springer’s book series Asia in Transition, on the International Editorial Board of International Journal of Asia Pacific Studies and on the Editorial Advisory Board of British Food Journal. Currently, I’m working on a research project that explores the relationship between vegetarian and non-vegetarian food markets in India.
