Profiel

Opgeleid als cultureel antropoloog en met meer dan 20 jaar ervaring op het gebied van onderzoek naar geleefde religie in Ghana, bestudeert Birgit Meyer religie vanuit een mondiaal, materieel en post-seculier perspectief. Drijfveer van haar onderzoek is het streven om de veranderende rol en plaats van religie in onze tijd te begrijpen en te laten zien dat wetenschappelijk onderzoek naar religie van centraal belang is voor een beter begrip van onze wereld in het begin van de 21ste eeuw. Tekenend voor haar werk is de synthese tussen empirisch onderzoek en theoretische reflectie in een brede multidisciplinaire setting. Zwaartepunten van haar onderzoek zijn de opkomst en populariteit van globale pinksterkerken; religie, populaire cultuur en erfgoed; religie en media; religie en de publieke sfeer; religieuze visuele cultuur, zintuigen en esthetiek.
