Religion and Covid19: between communal and universal responses Professor Jocelyne Cesari Professor of Religion and Politics, University of Birmingham J. Dermot Dunphy Visiting Professor of Religion, Violence, and Peacebuilding at Harvard Divinity School 7.30pm Thursday 10th December 2020 Jocelyne Cesari joined Birmingham University in September 2015 as Professor of Religion and Politics, working primarily in the Edward Cadbury Centre for the Public Understanding of Religion, where she has particular responsibility for oversight of the Centre's research agenda. Her role is to bridge the gap between religious studies and social sciences by investigating the interactions between religion and politics across different traditions and cultures with a particular focus on democracy, secularization and toleration. Her talk this evening will address the question: Will COVID-19 lead to increased nationalist exclusionary and defensive attitudes among the religious, or might it be the cure that leads to radical social reorientation with a new emphasis on collective solidarity?
