Rebecca Catto

Research overview

I am a sociologist researching the religious and non-religious in contemporary Britain with a particular interest in globalisation, Christian mission, law and youth.

Recent highlights for me include completing The Young Atheists Research Project, and becoming a Visiting Fellow at Goldsmiths, University of London, Faiths and Civil Society Unit.

Professional Role

I am Research Associate on the AHRC/ESRC Religion and Society Programme. I work with the Programme Director Linda Woodhead, award holders, research councils, other public and academic bodies and the media in order to inform public debate and advance understanding of religion in a complex world.

Responsibilities include disseminating findings from the 75 projects funded by Religion and Society in an accessible manner, helping to organise and writing reports from events, managing the website, overseeing impact funding competitions and co-editing the Ashgate AHRC/ESRC Religion and Society book series.
