Emir Mahieddin conducts the project Doing God’s Work in the Kingdom of the Secular. Ethics, and charismata in Pentecostal Migrant Churches (Sweden), as a postdoctoral researcher within the programme the Impact of Religion.

Besides, Emir Mahieddin is a research partner at the IDEMEC, an Institute of comparative anthropology in Aix-en-Provence (France) where he wrote his PhD dissertation. He also taught anthropology at Aix-Marseille University from 2009 to 2016.

His doctoral work 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.Drawing on the work of anthropologists such as Bruno Latour and Tanya Luhrmann, he questioned the way one could take God into account as an active agent in the ethnographic narrative and in the analysis.

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.
