Research Interests

Dr. Fogg’s research focuses on Islamic Southeast Asia, and particularly Indonesia, as it came into independence. His first book was on the role of Muslims in, and the Muslim understanding of, the Indonesian Revolution, 1945-1949. He is currently working on a monograph about the mass Islamic organizations of Indonesia, both how they are different from associational life in other parts of the Muslim world and how they have evolved over the last century.
Before taking up his current post at UNC, Dr. Fogg taught for seven years at the University of Oxford, and he has collaborated extensively with the State Islamic University network in Indonesia.
