Professor Christian Lange, Research Institute for Philosophy and Religious Studies, Arabic and Islamic Studies, Utrecht University.

Christian (born in 1975) is a leading researcher worldwide, part of a new generation of Islamic studies scholars. After receiving his PhD at Harvard, he taught Islamic studies there and at Edinburgh University. He is interested in the major themes of Islamic studies, for example legal theories (including punishment) and representations of the hereafter. Alongside the “traditional” text-based approach, he uses methods borrowed from religious studies, cultural anthropology and philosophy. His vast international network allows him to propose alternative perspectives drawn from other scientific cultures in policy-related discussions.
