Professor Kim Knott

Emeritus Professor

Research Overview

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.
