Prof. Luke Yarbrough’s research deals with two topics that are of direct relevance to “Cultural brokerage in premodern Islam.” First, he publishes on the Muslim normative orders that governed the presence of non-Muslims in premodern Islamic societies, including law—the socalled “dhimma system”—but encompassing the normative outlooks of Muslim rulers and belletrists as well those of as jurists.
I am interested in morality and ethics in organizational contexts. In one program of research, I study how humanizing organizations (thinking that organizations are similar to human beings) influences how people perceive and judge them. These include, for example, how people assign responsibility, empathize, and trust the organizations. In another area of research, I study how moral motivations, such as loyalty, influence people's attitudes and behaviors. Outside research, I like going to the theatre, such as musicals and plays, going to museums, exploring cities by doing restaurant crawls, hiking, running, going to classical concerts and going to comedy shows. I love playing the piano.
