Detailed Project Information

My project, which is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, has been designed to examine the ways in which people talk about ‘religion’ and related categories (such as ‘Christian’, ‘Allah’, ‘hijab’, ‘atheism’, and even ‘evolution’) in the South Side of Edinburgh. What I am aiming to find out is, firstly, how people in the South Side talk about these concepts, regardless of their religious beliefs. Secondly, I hope to advance theoretical discussion of these concepts within Religious Studies. And, finally, I hope to propose practical applications for this work, particularly in conflict situations framed in religious language.

This social-scientific research is being conducted using a combination of interviews, ethnographic observation, and discourse analysis. If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch. My contact details are available on the Contact page.

    Interesting project Chris, I grew up in the Grange. My PhD was AHRC funded but in something a million miles from this. Good luck with it.
