Religion, Culture, Politics

The study of religion and modernity in a range of historical, regional,  and cultural contexts. Faculty draw upon theories and methods from  religious studies, anthropology, sociology, political theory, history  and philosophy. This field is directly related to the CSR’s Religion in the Public Sphere initiative, which functions as a hub for  students and scholars at the University of Toronto who are engaged with  the study of religion as it intersects with public policy and public  debate.
