Erin Wilson
Erin Wilson

Erin Wilson is universitair hoofddocent Politiek en Religie aan de Faculteit Godgeleerdheid en Godsdienstwetenschap. Ze studeerde politicologie en promoveerde in 2008 aan de University of Queensland. Haar onderzoek bevindt zich op het snijvlak van religiestudies, internationale betrekkingen en filosofie. Wilson ontwikkelde het model ‘relationele dialogisme’, waarmee de rollen en betekenissen van religie voor internationale verhoudingen op een nieuwe manier verklaard kunnen worden. Haar werk is sterk gericht op de bruikbaarheid voor politici en beleidsmakers.

Erin Wilson stimuleert studenten om kritisch na te denken, de link tussen de geleerde theorie en de maatschappelijke praktijk staat centraal. ‘De universiteit is niet alleen bedoeld als instituut om kennis op te doen, maar heeft ook als opdracht goede burgers af te leveren. Mensen die kritisch na kunnen denken en de wereld willen verbeteren’, aldus Wilson.

Haar blog The Religion Factor geniet internationaal aanzien. Ze is daarnaast mederedacteur van het boek ‘The Refugee Crisis and Religion’. Van 2012 tot 2017 was ze directeur van onderzoekscentrum Centre for Religion, Conflict and the Public Domain. Momenteel is ze lid van de Young Academy Groningen.
