"My research examines interdisciplinary aspects of the study of religion and culture and focuses on questions of epistemology and the politics of knowledge. There are four main areas to my current work, covering my interests in religion, philosophy, politics and the history of ideas. First, I am writing a book entitled William James on Religion for the Equinox series Key Thinkers in the Study of Religion, which completes a series of studies about William James. Second, I am working on a long term research project, started during my 2007 sabbatical on religion and globalization in relation to international institutions, with particular focus on Quakers and international relations. This has led to the development of a research project, with Professor Hugh Miall (Department of International Relations and Politics, University of Kent) and a team of international researchers, to examine the nature and effectiveness of religious non-governmental organizations (NGOs) at the United Nations. Third, I am finishing an editorial project with Professor Morny Joy (Calgary University, Canada) completing the posthumous work of Grace Jantzen on feminist philosophy of religion: Death and the Displacement of Beauty in Western Philosophy Vols 2 and 3 (Routledge). Finally, my work involves interdisciplinary links with projects in the Humanities at Kent on Cultural Memory and with the Centre of Politics and Spirituality in the Department of Politics and International Relations...

"I am on the editorial board of Foucault Studies and a member of the advisory board of The Foucault Society. I am on the editorial board of the Kent Studies in European Culture and Languages, Scholars Press. I have also appeared on Radio 4 and BBC television discussing issues related to capitalism and religion and spirituality and advertising." [1]
