Personal profile

Research Interests

Professor Ingram is a specialist in Islamic studies. He works on Islam in South Asia and South Africa, with a particular interest in how Muslims have debated Sufism, Islamic law, and politics in the modern era. He is currently working on a second book, examining how Muslims have theorized, debated and contested the category of ‘religion’. He is especially interested in the intellectual routes through which Western concepts of religion (largely, but never monolithically, ‘Protestant’) circulated in Muslim societies under colonialism, and how and why certain thinkers, scholars and activists, usually grouped under the rubric of ‘political Islam’, rejected the notion that the category of ‘religion’ correlated with din – the word, in Islamicate languages, most often taken to be religion’s equivalent.
