Biography:

Chris read Theology & Religious Studies at the University of Cambridge, before taking an MPhil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Oxford, and later returning to Cambridge for a doctorate in the Anthropology of Religion. His wider professional experience includes media, research, and international affairs.

His doctoral research comprised an ethnography of an Islamic institution in west London. It focused on how it was produced as an object of knowledge by a series of internally heterogeneous audiences (community, researchers, media, state), as well as how actors and structures created multiple layers of meaning, both in relation to the institution's essence in general and through particular categories of place, space, and time.

Chris's current work interests include: charity, ethics, and economics; gender and space; ethnography and urban studies; religion and migration; and, the relationship between anthropology and theology.

He is also part of the Cambridge Inter-faith Programme team, focusing on inter-religious civil society engagement and public education.
