Professor Ammerman is a prominent researcher in the field of “lived religion”, which argues for the study of how religion is expressed in daily life, rather than attempting to understand its individual and societal significance through dogma and organisations. Her books Everyday Religion: Observing Modern Religious Lives and Sacred Stories and Spiritual Tribes: Finding Religion in Everyday Life are central works in the field’s theoretical and methodological development and are used in many research topics within theology and religious sciences. Professor Ammerman is the recipient of several awards for the contribution her previous studies of fundamentalist Christian congregations in the United States have made to understanding the internal dynamics and societal role of these movements. She served as President of the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion from 2004-2005, Chair of the Religion Section of the American Sociological Association from 2000-2001 and President of the Association for the Sociology of Religion from 1995-1996.
Open to researchers and doctoral students.
