This network seeks to rejuvenate the study of religion in Scottish society. While religion's significance remains an important factor in government policymaking, its prominence in the curricula and research agendas of Scottish universities has diminished.
With the area of study at a low ebb, this network seek to reinvigorate the subject of Scottish religious cultures by bringing together academics and postgraduate students from Scotland, England, Ireland, Northern Ireland and beyond these islands to study religion’s contribution to the formation of Scottishness and its on-going legacy.
Importantly the approach is interdisciplinary and seeks to include scholars of art, history, law, literature, politics, sociology, and theology.
