      Research Topics, Overview of the research

      • Research Topics

        Indian Ocean History, Islamic Law and Society, Religion and Development, Southeast Asian Languages and Cultures, Maldives, Maritime Asia Heritage Survey
      • Overview of the research


        The main focus of my work is in Islamic Studies, with a particular emphasis on the history of Muslim societies of Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean World. Within that geographic area, my first two monographs dealt with the history of legal thought and practice in Indonesia. My research interests, however, extend beyond legal history and across the broader maritime world of Islam around the Indian Ocean littoral. I have also worked in a number of other areas, publishing on topics including Muslim networks, Qur’anic studies, Sufism, Shiism, trans-regional histories, and local histories - especially of Aceh and the Maldives.
