Expertise

The Department of Theology & Religious Studies stands out for its broad range of research on religion in all its aspects. It draws on the expertise of a community of outstanding researchers in the humanities and social sciences who investigate religious traditions from around the world in their specific cultural and historical contexts.

The Department’s research programme advocates a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of religion through its research centres and the shared thematic interests that bind together its many research projects. Its key fields of research include the interfaces between text, context and material culture; arts and the sacred; religious and ethnic diversity; religion and politics; life writing; and spirituality and the body.

Committed to impactful research beyond academia and to promoting the values of a civic university, TRS maintains an outward-facing research profile through its cultural engagements, contributions to society, and study of religious innovations.
