Ann Swidler


 Ann Swidler (Ph.D. UC Berkeley; B.A. Harvard) studies the interplay of culture and institutions. She asks how culture works–both how people use it and how it shapes social life.

Saba Mahmood


Professor Mahmood received her PhD in anthropology from Stanford University. She holds professional degrees in architecture and urban planning, and worked in these fields before pursuing anthropology. Her most recent book, Religious Difference in a Secular Age: A Minority Report, examines conditions of secular governance that have exacerbated the plight of non-Muslim minorities in the modern Middle East, with a special focus on Egypt.
