Dr. Philipp Bruckmayr is a researcher with the University of Vienna who is an expert in Islamic Studies. His teaching over the past three years has focused on such topics as: Modern Islam, the Arab World, Political & Social Movements, Transnationalism, and Critical Media Analysis.
Philipp’s work is diverse, in that it engages with topics relevant to the study of Islamic communities in Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. In Cham Studies, he is particularly well known for his work on Cham Muslim communities in Cambodia, although he has also published a notable article regarding his ideas about syncretism in Cham communities in Vietnam.
Dr. Bruckmayr completed his dissertation in 2014 at the University of Vienna, with an interesting work on the history of intellectual discourses on Cham Muslims in Cambodia from the late 19th through the early 21st century. Below is a recent photo of him from a talk he gave on Afghanistan and Iran.:
We are very excited to announce that Dr. Bruckmayr has also just completed his first book.:
