Professor Kim Knott


Research Overview

I lead a programme of research in the Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST) focused on actors and ideologies in social context. My research interests include the theorization of space and place; the interrogation of religious and political spaces; spatial metaphors in religious and political discourse; the relationship between religion and non-religion; the 'secular sacred'; media representations of religion; and religion and its intersections with migration, diasporas, diversity and ethnicity.
