Connor Rechtzigel


Connor Rechtzigel is a first-year PhD student in anthropology. Broadly speaking, he is interested in the entanglements of religion, commodities, and affect in Indonesia. His ongoing research project examines Islamic marketing and discourses of 'pious' consumption within the context of Lombok's rapidly developing halal tourism industry, with particular attention to questions about religious authority, gender, and the state. 

Originally from Minnesota, Connor holds a B.A. in Religion from Carleton College.
