Politics, Philosophy & Religion

Politics, Philosophy & Religion

Our interdisciplinary research brings together scholars who work across the disciplines of Religious Studies, Philosophy, and Politics and International Relations with an aim to improve policies for promoting peace and security. Our researches support peace and security related issues by government officials – these have included the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism, the MOD Strategic Trends Unit, Public Safety Canada, and the House of Lords.

I am now Professor Emerita, having retired in September 2020.

From 2015-20, I was Deputy Director of the Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST) and led a research programme focused on actors and ideologies in social context.

My research interests include ideological transmission and learning; the interrogation of religious and political spaces; spatial metaphors in religious and political discourse; the 'secular sacred'; material religion; and religion, migration and diasporas.
