Stephen Gregg is Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies at the University of Wolverhampton, and the Hon. Secretary of the British Association for the Study of Religions. His background is in nineteenth-century Hindu philosophy, but in recent years he has specialised in minority religious movements, publically-projected religious identity, and method and theory in the Study of Religion. He teaches a wide range of religious traditions to undergraduates, and has always had an interest in student fieldwork pedagogies. Recent and forthcoming books include Jesus Beyond Christianity (Oxford University Press, 2010) with Greg Barker, Engaging with Living Religion (Routledge, 2015) with Lynne Scholefield, A Universal Advaita: Swami Vivekananda and Non-Hindu Traditions(Routledge, 2019), and The Bloomsbury Handbook on Studying Christians (Bloomsbury, 2019) and The Insider/Outsider Debate: New Approaches in the Study of Religion (Equinox, 2019) both with George D. Chryssides. Recent chapters and articles include work on Scientology, The International Raelian Movement, Apostasy in New Religious Movements, and fieldwork methodologies for NRM researchers.
He is currently working on transgressive and troubling religious actions and conceptions of religious belonging.
