Religion and Public Action

Our research on religion and public action explores the interface between the religious and the political, from investigating the effects of evangelism to engaging with the role of faith based organisations in humanitarian interventions.

Within the anthropology of religion Edinburgh hosts a growing group of researchers focused on the anthropology of Christianity in Africa, South and North America.

The University of Edinburgh is home to the UK's only Working Group on the Anthropology of Christianity
