Themes

The purpose of the RPS is to cultivate interdisciplinary conversations about religion, politics, and the secular, and provide opportunities for greater intellectual exchange and informed critical debate among University of Toronto faculty and students researching the role of religion in public life. Taking a specific theme, we provide scholarly resources for examining how religion manifests in public spaces, institutions, and interactions, and more specifically for understanding the challenges and possibilities of religious diversity in Toronto and around the globe. Our public events and partnerships help us convey and discuss this research with audiences outside the University
