About Agathe Guy

I am a PhD student in anthropology. For the past two years, I have been working on islam in Russia and recently shifted my point of view toward Central Asia (Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan). I have been, more precisely, working on the halal market. As an activist in my own country (France), I am also really interested in gender studies thematic. Finally, as you can guess from this last sentence, my native language is French but I also can work in English and Spanish.
