OMAR KASMANI
Cultural anthropologist // writer // ex-architect. I am a post-doctoral fellow at Affective Societies, a collaborative research centre at Freie Universität, Berlin. My work pursues ideas of post-migrant be/longing, queer futurities and public intimacy—a research practice that is best read across the study of religion, queer and affect theory. I am particularly interested in issues of form, feeling and transference in ethnographic writing. I have co-edited the book Muslim Matter (Revolver Publishing, 2016) and currently working on my first monograph on saintly intimacy and unstraight futures in Pakistan. I teach on urban geographies, religion and queer theory with expertise in Sufi life-worlds and contemporary South Asia. My published work can be accessed via my profile on Academia.
