    Michael Kemper is interested in contemporary Russian foreign policies as well as in the history of Russia and Eurasia. His research focus is on Islam and Orthodoxy in Russia, Ukraine, Central Asia, and the Caucasus, as well as on the history of Orientalism and Oriental Studies in Europe. He has a special interest in the interaction between languages and religions (Russian-Tatar-Orthodoxy-Islam), as well as in strategic regions such as the Caucasus and the Arctic.

    Kemper is professor and chair of Eastern European Studies, one of the four chair groups of European Studies at UvA; between 2015 and 2018 he also served as head of the Department of History, European Studies and Religious Studies. Since 2019 he is director of the Amsterdam School of Regional, Transnational and European Studies (ARTES), a part of UvA's Amsterdam Institute of Humanity Studies.

    Kemper did his PhD (1997) and habilitation (2003) at the department of Oriental and Islamic studies of Bochum Ruhr University; there he also directed, in close collaboration with Prof. Stefan Reichmuth, a Junior Research Group on "Islamic Networks of Education (18th-20th Centuries)", supported by the Volkswagen Foundation. Between 1998 and 2007, this group produced seven dissertations on Islamic movements of education in India, Syria, Bosnia, and Turkey/the Ottoman Empire. Before coming to UvA Kemper worked as assistant professor for Central EurasianHistory at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY.

    Kemper is member of the editorial board of Die Welt des Islams (Brill) and other journals, and honorary editor of the History journal of the Friendship of Peoples' University in Moscow (RUDN).
