Supervision


I have supervised many postgraduate dissertations over the years, from MAs through to PhDs. Some of these have become available electronically through different means, as well as being published. I decided to set up a listing here, which I will continue to update as further links become available. This is a very short listing, given the number that I have worked on (especially for the MA Islamic Studies at UWTSD). I will continue to search out others to list here. Please note that I'm not responsible for external links here. Contact me if you are interested in undertaking postgraduate work in my research areas. Areas I am currently supervising include: historical and contemporary aspects of Shi'ism, historical biographies of Islamic figures, online religion, Islam and media representation, 'orientalism', Islam and the environment, medical ethics and mental health.
