Mark Sedgwick

My research focuses on junctions for the transfer of religions and traditions in the late pre-modern and modern periods. My two most recent books are collections, Anarchist, Artist, Sufi: The Politics, Painting, and Esotericism of Ivan Aguéli (Bloomsbury, 2021) and Esoteric Transfers and Constructions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (with Francesco Piraino; Palgrave, 2021). A monograph, Traditionalism: The Radical Project for Restoring Sacred Order (Penguin) is due out in 2023.

In addition,

I am coordinator of the Arab and Islamic Studies Research Network (ICSRU) at Aarhus University. I am also convenor of the European Network for the Study of Islam and Esotericism and chair of the Nordic Society for Middle Eastern Studies.
