Until vry recently Caroline Tee ws Research Associate on the project Science and Scripture in Christianity and Islam. She worked alongside Dr Hilary Marlow in exploring the ways in which Muslim and Christian scientists from different contexts relate their scriptures and traditions to the scientific worlds in which they operate.

Caroline is a social anthropologist of Islam and prior to this project she was postdoctoral research assistant in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at Bristol University. Her research there focused on a major Turkish religious organisation, the Gulen Movement, and explored its engagement as a pious religious group with modern science and science education. Her research monograph derived from this research, entitled The Gulen Movement in Turkey: The Politics of Islam, Science and Modernity, is under contract with I.B. Tauris for publication in 2016.

Caroline originally studied for an undergraduate degree in English Literature at Durham University, before living and working in Turkey for five years. She subsequently gained a Masters degree in Islamic Studies at Exeter, before continuing for her PhD in Social Anthropology and Religious Studies at Bristol. Her doctoral work focused on the Alevi community in Turkey, and examined the urbanisation and reformulation of the Alevi tradition that has been on-going since the end of the 20th century.

Caroline also has research interests in the broader field of Islamic mysticism and the Sufi poetic tradition, and teaches regularly on Islam at various academic institutions in the UK.   She takes up her new position as Senior Lecturer at Chester University in September 2018.
