Ruth Marshall

Associate professor in the departments of political science and study of religion at the University of Toronto, Ruth Marshall is the author of Political Spiritualities: The Pentecostal Revolution in Nigeria (U. Chicago Press, 2009). Her work seeks to clear an analytical space in which the political productivity of religious discourse and practice may be recognized and analyzed non-reductively. Her book-in-progress examines the renewed ethico-political force of religious language in the public sphere and the political challenge that religious revivalism poses to democratic forms of life around the globe.
