theology and sociology
Areas of expertise My research interests are in historical sociology and the relationship between sociology and theology (Catholicism), which has been my main area of research since the mid-1980s. Currently, with Peter C. Jupp, I am editing a special issue of New Blackfriars on Charles Taylorís A Secular Age. I have just completed an essay on my work, in response to questions posed by Keith Tester for a collection I am planning to edit on sociologists and religious belief.

My main project is a book: Utterances in the Wilderness: Sociology at Prayer which I plan to complete in 2011.
