Bio

Scott Spurlock is Head of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Glasgow. He has researched and taught Scottish and Irish history at several leading universities including Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Trinity College Dublin, Queen’s University Belfast and Manchester. With the help of a RSE Networking grant he established the Scottish Religious Cultures Network in 2015 to support study of the historic and ongoing role of religion in Scottish society.
