Remembering Professor Saba Mahmood

Monday, March 12, 2018

The CMES is mourning the loss of our affiliated faculty member Saba Mahmood, a professor of Sociocultural Anthropology, who passed away on Saturday, March 10, 2018. A highly influential scholar of the relationship between religious and secular politics in postcolonial societies, sovereignty, subject formation, law, and gender/sexuality, Professor Mahmood was a vibrant and invaluable colleague, mentor, and teacher. Most recently, she was working on questions of political violence and survival, with a focus on Sunni-Shia relations in South Asia and the Middle East. We will post any information on campus memorial activities as we receive it.
