ACLS New Faculty Fellow, Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer
Sadia Saeed received her PhD in sociology from University of Michigan in 2010. Her research and teaching interests include historical sociology, political sociology, culture and religion, law and society and modern Pakistan and South Asia. Her work focuses on intersections between state formation, nationalism, law and religion in Pakistan. She is currently working on her book manuscript which examines the relationship between state formation, Islamist social movements and nationalist discourses in Pakistan through a focus on the shifting legal representations of the heterodox religious minority, the Ahmadiyya community. Her research has appeared in Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism and Political Power and Social Theory. Before joining Yale, Saeed held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Maurer School of Law at Indiana University, Bloomington.
