Institute for Religion & Critical Inquiry

Critical conversations in philosophy, theology, religion, history, and literature.

The IRCI fosters interdisciplinary research into relations between philosophy, religion, and culture, past and present.

The IRCI promotes collaborative research on religion and philosophy from multiple disciplinary perspectives. Focusing on philosophy and Christian thought and practice from antiquity to today, we explore inter-relationships between religion and its cultural contexts, and contribute to contemporary theological, philosophical, ethical, and political debates. In this way, the IRCI aims to advance understanding of our world and imagine ways to improve it.
