Sarover Zaidi was a doctoral research fellow at the Max Planck Institute with an affiliation at the University of Utrecht, Amsterdam. Her work focussed on religious architecture in Mumbai and its relationship to the larger neighborhood, municipal planning and urban space of the city. Working between theological architecture (especially the three Semitic religions), ghettoized neighborhoods, and the formation of city plans she will look at the forms in which these expand into, the social, the political and the pluralistic practice of religion in a cosmopolitan city.
