Royster Distinguished Professor for Graduate Education at The Graduate School (2018-2021) and the co-editor of the Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies (2014-2018).

Kabir Tambar is a sociocultural anthropologist, working at the intersections of political anthropology and the anthropology of religion. He is broadly interested in the politics of history, performances of public criticism, and varieties of Islamic practice in Turkey. Tambar’s first book, The Reckoning of Pluralism Political Belonging and the Demands of History in Turkey (2014), is a study of the politics of pluralism in contemporary Turkey, focusing on the ways that Alevi religious history is staged for public display. He is currently working on a new project that examines the politics and ethics of nonviolence in Turkey.
