Chris Baker

Chris is the William Temple Professor of Religion and Public life at the University of Chester. He’s interested in the relationship between religion and public life, and therefore the impact religious ideas, identities and practices have on politics and public policy in the UK and beyond. Chris’ teaching and research is therefore concerned with a critical, balanced and empirically derived exploration of the endlessly changing relationship between religion and secularism in an increasingly diverse and fluid public sphere. Although trained as a theologian, his work is increasingly interdisciplinary, including especially political philosophy, sociology and human geography and public policy.
