Dr. Fuad Naeem's dissertation research focused on the nineteenth century Muslim scholar and theologian Muhammad Qasim Nanautvi, founder of the influential school of Deoband, his particpation in religious debate and dialogue between Muslims, Christians, and Hindus in South Asia and the transformations and reconfigurations of Islamic scholarly traditions in the modern period. His interests include Islamic intellectual traditions in South Asia, Muslim encounters with religious others, Islam and modernity, the Qur'an and its exegesis, and Islamic philosophy, theology, and esoteric traditions.
