Johan Fischer is Associate Professor in the Department of Society and Globalisation, Roskilde University, Denmark. His work focuses on modern Islam and consumer culture in Southeast Asia and Europe. A central focus in Johan’s research is the theoretical and empirical focus on the proliferation of halal commodities on a global scale. He is presently working on a monograph with the provisional title On the Halal Frontier: Consuming Malays in London that explores ways in which modern halal is formative of emerging Islamic identities; the fusion of religion and consumption; novel approaches to an anthropology of the state; diasporic material culture as well as forms of capitalism in the new millennium.

Proper Islamic Consumption

Shopping among the Malays in Modern Malaysia

The West has seen the rise of the organic movement. In the Muslim world, a similar halal movement is rapidly spreading. This is the first book to explore how Malaysia’s emerging Malay middle class is being shaped by consumer practices and Islamic revivalism - and powerful linkages between class, consumption, market relations, Islam and the state.
