about the speaker

Benjamin Schewel received his PhD in philosophy from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium in 2014 and is currently an Associate Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia. His research centres on questions concerning religion and the public sphere. His first book, which he is currently in the final stages of revising, describes the various ways that academics narrate the changing place of religion in the modern world. He is also editing two books, one on religion and the public sphere and another on religion and contemporary European society. While at the Refugee Studies Centre, Benjamin will consider the contributions that religious concepts can make to prevalent ethical debates surrounding forced migration. This research will form part of his second solo book project, which is tentatively titled, Religion and the Problem of the Good World.

The title of his paper is: 'Religion and the ethics of forced migration'.
