About Me

Posted: October 5, 2012 in Uncategorized

This is a website of Dr. Teemu Taira. It provides information about my scholarly works and interests.

I am senior lecturer at the Department of Study of Religions, University of Helsinki and Docent at the Department of Comparative Religion, University of Turku, Finland. I am also reviews editor of TEMENOS: Nordic Journal of Comparative Religion.

My recent research has focused on three areas: 1) religion in the media, 2) the new visibility of atheism and 3) discursive study of the category of ‘religion’

You can also find me on academia.edu and Twitter. Some of my publications are available on academia.edu and on Twitter I mainly share links related to theory, religion and related matters.
