Kabir Tambar is an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at Stanford University. He has also taught in the Department of Religion at the University of Vermont and was a member in the School of Social Sciences at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton in 2011-2012. His work has largely centered on Turkey and has explored questions of citizenship, religion, and the politics of history.

Tambar has also begun new research on military rule and the instabilities of mass politics.
