Rosemary Hancock

Rosemary Hancock is a sociologist who thinks and writes about the intersection of religion with politics and activism. Her research blurs the boundary between the religious and the political. She grapples with the ways religion is integrated into grassroots political spaces, and how the engagement of religious people and organisations in democratic politics and civil society transforms both those spaces and religious communities themselves. Her first book, Islamic Environmentalism: Activism in the United States and Great Britain, examined the complex synthesis of Islamic and environmental practice and thought in the US and UK.  Rosemary is a Lecturer in the Institute for Ethics and Society at the University of Notre Dame Australia, where she co-convenes the Religion and Global Ethics research focus area.
