Humeira Iqtidar

Dr Humeira Iqtidar is Lecturer in the Politics of South Asia at King’s College London, and her research is concerned with exploring the contours of social and political theory particularly in the South Asian context. She is interested in the shifting demarcations of state and market, society and economy, secularism and secularization. Currently her research has two key strands. One explores ideas and practices related to tolerance within the Pakistani context. The other engages with the relationship between liberalization and piety in both UK and Pakistan. Her recent books include Secularising Islamists? Jamaat-e-Islami and Jamaat-ud-Dawa in Pakistan, published by University of Chicago Press in 2011, and also in 2011, a 4 volume collection with Routledge, edited with David Lehmann, entitled Fundamentalism and Charismatic Movements.
