I am the Founder and Co-ordinator of NYU Research Group on Transnational Everyday Life which intends to refocus on the material and cultural dimensions of the everyday. A crucial impulse behind this project is to demystify an obsessive focus on extraordinary events of violence and catastrophe in a global context. While exploring everyday life in the Euro-American context, a considerable part of the project will be devoted to the study of everyday life in the Muslim world.
The group is sponsored and modestly funded by the Dept. of English, New York University.
