We are pleased to announce the acceptance of Prof. Dr. Adrian Hermann.

Adrian Hermann, currently a junior professor at the University of Hamburg, has accepted the professorship for “Religion and Society” at Forum Internationale Wissenschaft and will start work on 1. February 2017. With the new department for comparative research in religion, the FIW is expanding its interdisciplinary, social-scientific profile.

As a scholar of religion, Adrian Hermann deals with theoretical and historical questions regarding the globalization of the concept of religion and the religious history of the globalized world. He has an international profile and directs inter alia since 2015, a five-year seminar of the American Academy of Religion on "New Perspectives on Religion in the Philippines".

He also brings his own DFG project to Bonn under the title "Independent Catholic Movements in Late 19th and Early 20th Century Asia. 'The Independent Catholics of India, Goa, and Ceylon' and the 'Iglesia Filipina Independiente' in the Context of Religious, Political, and Social Movements of Emancipation in Colonial Modernity".
