Ismail Fajrie Alatas is a doctoral candidate in Anthropology and History. He received his B.A. (Hons) from the University of Melbourne, Australia and his M.A. from the National University of Singapore. His latest book, Al-Rashafat: Percikan Cinta para Kekasih (Bentang 2013), is an Indonesian translation and commentary of an eighteenth-century Arabic Sufi Poem. He has written two other books in Indonesian and several articles and entries in Die Welt des Islams, Journal of Islamic Studies, Studia Islamika, and the Encyclopaedia of Islam.
Ismail plans to spend his one year term at the Institute on continued work on his dissertation, which explores the Islamic notion of sainthood and the tumult of religious belief. In particular, he examines the dialogic interrogations and critical negotiations that constitute the act of believing. He plans to defend in the spring/summer of 2015.
