Lebenslauf


Aleah Connley obtained her B.A. degree in Islamic Studies from the University of Melbourne in Australia. After moving to Germany, she continued her studies at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, graduating with a Master’s degree in Modern South and Southeast Asian studies with a particular focus on Islam in Indonesian.

During her studies, she spent time in Malaysia and Indonesia where she completed internships and conducted research for her M.A. thesis on the strategies which individual members of the controversial Ahmadiyah movement employ in order to overcome the wide spectrum of adverse and discriminatory experiences which are part of their daily lives.

Aleah Connley took up the position as research associate at Prof. Dr. Vincent Houben’s Department for Southeast Asian History and Society in October 2013. Since then, she has acted as the international coordinator for the International Summer School in Southeast Asian Studies, a program which is jointly conducted by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), and Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM). She also runs the department’s Nusantara Study Group for students interested in maritime Southeast Asia. Aleah is also currently working on her doctoral research project “Politicising Piety at the Periphery: Towards a Theory of the Dynamics of Islam and Local Politics in Middle Indonesia”.
