His most recent publication is La r?novation du sh?`isme isma?lien – d’apr?s les discours et les ?crits de Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan (1902-1957) (London, Curzon Routledge, 2003).
Dr Boivin is currently working on three books on Sindhi Studies: A collective volume on Sindhi culture, history and language with contributions by French scholars; an introduction on Sindhi culture and history co-edited with Prof. Ghulam Ali Allana (Sindh University); and a compilation of research on Sindh by specialists in the field, co-edited with Mathew Cook (Columbia University).
Dr Boivin’s current work on Islam and intercessors in popular religion in modern Sindh involves research on the modern history of the Ismailis, and an investigation on the devotion of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, a Sufi saint of Sindh (Pakistan) and Kutch (India). Dr. Boivin’s other research interests include the evolution of territories and communities in Karachi after 1947, the shaping of renewed identities in the Sindhi diaspora, and orientalism.
