Birgit Meyer

Birgit Meyer is professor of religious studies at Utrecht University. Trained in cultural anthropology, she has long conducted research on Christianity in Africa. With her transition from a position in cultural anthropology to religious studies in 2011, she increasingly concentrates on crosscutting issues in reconfiguring the study of religion from a material and postcolonial angle. In this context she also started to focus on religion in the Netherlands, especially the reframing of Christianity as cultural heritage. Since 2016 she directs the collaborative research program Religious Matters in an Entangled World.
