2020-2021 Research Associate
Bilal is a first-year Master of Theological Studies student at Harvard Divinity School, focusing on Religion, Ethics, and Politics. Specifically, he is interested in critical theory and the social and material constructions of poverty, race, and gender, especially as they pertain to healthcare. He recently graduated from Rice University with a B.A. in Philosophy. As an undergraduate, Bilal’s interests in postmodernism and post-colonial theory led him to consider how lived systems of ethics can exist in tension with or complementary to one another. Naturally, Bilal is delighted to further investigate these questions through the study of interfaith communities in the American South as a researcher at the Pluralism Project.
