Dr. Hale Inanoglu is a qualitative researcher focusing on how selves are made in the American religious landscape. Her dissertation titled “Gender and Diaspora in the Making of Pious Subjectivity” elucidates the processes and disciplining mechanisms though which women create a particular type of religious selfhood for different publics. She also has experience working with churches and various Christian traditions in the United States as part of a team of researchers. Her current research at George Mason University explores the link between Muslim college students’ self-presentation on social media and their religious formation.
