Nareman Amin received her PhD in Religion from Princeton University. From 2021 to 2022, she was the Andrea Mitchell Postdoctoral Fellow and Middle East Center Regional Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania.
Her research focuses on religious authority, affect, political participation and Muslim youth culture. Her book project, “Is God for Revolution?: Youth and Islam in Post-2011 Egypt” examines how political participation in a revolution can change the landscape of religious discourse and practice. In particular, she explores how Muslim youth partaking in the 2011 Egyptian uprising affectively responded to the promise and ultimate demise of a revolution.
She has taught courses at the University of Pennsylvania and the American University in Cairo on social movements and revolutions, youth culture and religion and social media. Her work is published in Die Welt des Islams, Islamic Law and Society, and Protest (forthcoming).
