Our Comment pieces cover a diverse range of topics and allow our writers to reflect on many aspects of their research.


For our Spotlight pieces, we look to explore different individuals and organisations working on religion in public life, in its different forms, both in the UK and internationally.

Photo Voice

Our Photo Voice pieces aim to analyse wider themes surrounding religion in public life through the use of images.  It could come from fieldwork, a research project or an archive – it just needs to be taken by the writer.

Researcher of the Month

Each of our ‘Researcher of the Month’ profiles are of a specific member of the Centre for Religion and Public Life. It asks the researcher about their research journeys, inspirations and current projects. Here at the CRPL, we want to celebrate the achievements of our members and this is one way we can do so.
