Podcast # 2 is online! Guest: Aleeha Ali

In this episode, Puck de Boer talks with Aleeha Ali, who studied sociology in Pakistan, did a research master’s in anthropology in the UK and is currently a PhD candidate at the department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the VU.

Topics include:
-Aleeha’s research on digitization of religious mourning among Shi’a Muslims in Europe – even more relevant in times of Covid-19.
-Her experiences in different educational systems.
-The diversification of perspectives in a postcolonial anthropology.
-What characterizes anthropology and how it relates to other disciplines.
-Conducting (digital) ethnographic fieldwork during a pandemic.

The close listener might notice a difference in the sound quality between the two speakers. We are still working our way around the technical issues and will make sure to prevent this in the upcoming episodes!
