Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are broadly in the areas of gender, race and religion in South Asia and among Muslim women in the UK. My PhD research re-constructed the theory of  the classed gender identity of New Woman in Bangladesh. I have applied this theorisation to further research on Bollywood and other media representation of women in South Asia. I have also published on women's roles in religious nationalism, Muslim women's political activism and migrant South Asian women's experiences in the UK. Recently, I edited a journal special issue on Decolonising Gender research in South Asia with Third World Thematics. I currently supervise a PhD student studying British Muslim women's Political Activism.
