我是一個文化人類學者,研究興趣在於宗教、性別、種族與現代性的多重糾葛,區域專長是東南亞,其次為廣泛的伊斯蘭世界。2017年夏我出版了我的跨宗教民族誌, Entangled Pieties: Muslim-Christian Relations and Gendered Socialities in Java, Indonesia ,詳細探討了印尼爪哇一個山城中穆斯林+基督徒混居社群的跨宗教日常生活,尤其是性別化的社會關係。 這幾年我都在從事伊斯蘭與實驗室相關的STS研究,重點尤其放在印尼馬來半島上,雖然也不時延伸到紐澳與歐美去。因為投入於清真驗證科學化這個新的研究主題,我開始注意到多物種在人類知識中的重要角色,也因此碰觸到動物生理學,分子生物學,藥學等等清真相關的實驗,並以人類學的角度來看待這些科學的論述與發展。

En-Chieh Chao is a cultural anthropologist holding her Ph.D. from Boston University, currently Associate Professor of Sociology Department at National Sun Yat-sen University in Taiwan. Her research interests focus on the intersections between religion, gender, race, and STS (social studies of science/technology). Her book Entangled Pieties: Muslim-Christian Relations and Gendered Socialities in Java, Indonesia was released from Palgrave Macmillan in August 2017. More recently, Chao undertakes a project to study Islam with science, technology and society in the Indo-Malay world. She explores the overlooked multi-species sciences of halalness-the dynamics of Islamic ritual purity in modern life involving animal physiology, molecular biology, and oil chemistry-to expose the social contingencies that gave birth to certain scientific practices and religious understandings in the late 20th and 21st centuries. Her peer-reviewed articles (written either in English or Chinese) investigate issues including: the cultural history of inter-religious lives in Java; Islamophobia and cyber-racism in the US; young female hijab designers' social influence in Indonesia ; and the relationship between global Islamic jurisprudence, animal welfare, the modern meat industry , as well as laboratory science.
