Biographical note

José Mapril received his PhD in Anthropology from the Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon, in 2008, with a research about transnationalism and Islam among Bangladeshis in Lisbon and in Dhaka. Between 2008 and 2012, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Research in Anthropology (CRIA) and, in 2009, a visiting postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Global Studies, University of Sussex. Since 2012, he is a visiting lecturer at the Department of Anthropology, New University of Lisbon, and a researcher at CRIA. Together with João Leal, he coordinates the research group on Circulation and Place-Making, within CRIA. His main research interests are transnationalisms, migrations, diasporas, subjectivities, cultural citizenship, Islams and Muslims, Islamophobia, and secularisms, which have been developed through multi-sited ethnographies, including Portugal, Bangladesh and the UK..
