Islam as a lived tradition: ethical constellations of Muslim food practice in Mumbai
- completed -
In April 2017, Shaheed Tayob defended his Ph.D. thesis, entitled “Islam as a Lived Tradition: Ethical Constellations of Muslim Food Practice in Mumbai”. Soon after the defense, Shaheed was employed as a Permanent Lecturer in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. He has since continued to write on his research in Mumbai, and is currently in the process of developing that work into a book. He currently has one article from the Max Planck funded Ph.D. research which argues the critical potential of disgust as a mode of embodied critique. His research speaks to the current right-wing politics of marginalization of Muslims in India.
