Biografi

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

Emir Mahieddin is researcher at the CNRS and member of the CéSor, at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris, France. He joined the CRS as a postdoctoral researcher in April 2017. He now cooperates with the Centre within the frame of the project Pentecostal Migrants in Secular Sweden : Influences and Challenges for which he was granted fundings in november 2018.

In 2017-2018, he conducted the project Doing God’s Work in the Kingdom of the Secular. Ethics, and charismata in Pentecostal Migrant Churches (Sweden), within the programme the Impact of Religion.This postdoctoral work, of which the current project Pentecostal Migrants in Secular Sweden is a prolongation, dealt with the meaning of the religious experiences in situations of migration.

His doctoral work (Aix-Marseille Uni., nov. 2015) dealt with the transformations of Pentecostalism in Sweden, and the adaptations of the local Pentecostal moral discourse to a highly secularized context. He tried in his earlier work to develop an anthropological discourse that is respectful of the beliefs of his research interlocutors. He questioned the way one could take God into account as an active agent in the ethnographic narrative and in the analysis. His book published in december 2018 in France, Faire le travail de Dieu. Une anthropologie morale du pentecôtisme en Suède (Paris, Karthala) is an outline of an anthropology of the power of God, Swedish Pentecostalism being taken as a case study.

Emir Mahieddin has a variety of research interests, ranging from the use of daily metaphors to religious music and entrepreneurship. He is also interested in ethics and the construction of moral subjectivities through religious discourse. He is especially interested in the condition of moral minorities.
