Law, Colin
Visiting Lecturer

Colin Law’s academic background in Religious Studies includes an M.A. from the University of Georgia and a Ph.D. from the University of Ottawa.  Dr. Law’s research explores the intersections of religion, politics, culture, and civic space.  His current project utilizes an interdisciplinary approach exploring U.S. history, American civil religion, symbolic representations of identity, and the contentious debates surrounding monuments and memorials.  He is particularly interested in how civil and religious sacred sites construct cultural identities and practices.  Additionally, he examines material religion, investigating how religious objects and artifacts influence religious beliefs and practices.  Through Dr. Law’s research, he aims to uncover how space and place shape religious experiences and contribute to the broader understanding of cultural and religious dynamics.
