Welcome to my ePortfolio!
My name is Morteza and I received my PhD in sociology from the University of Warwick. I am currently a postdoc researcher at the University of Edinburgh's department of social anthropology. You can find my CV here.
Main research fields:
social and political theory, technology studies, immigration, media sociology, cultural sociology, and sociology of religion. I’m always pleased to hear from anyone who wants to share his or her ideas in these research fields.
In my PhD thesis I examined a pragmatist approach to modern theist and atheist intellectualism through their connections with theology. After my PhD, I worked on the book version of the thesis. Theism and Atheism in a Post-Secular Age will be published in June 2017 by Palgrave Macmillan.
