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 in the study of religion, University of Helsinki, and Docent at the Department of Study of Religion, University of Turku, Finland.

Over the past fifteen years my research has focused on three areas: 1) religion in the media, 2) the new visibility of atheism and nonreligion and 3) discursive study of the category of ‘religion’

Currently, I am finalizing two works: single-authored book Taking “Religion” Seriously: Essays on the Discursive Study of Religion (Brill) and edited volume Atheism in Five Minutes (Equinox).

You can also find me on academia.edu and Twitter. I also blog in Finnish.
