Research in Sociology of Religion

Cecilia Delgado-Molina joins ISOR as postdoctoral researcher


Dr. Cecilia Delgado-Molina joins the ISOR team as a research associate in the international research project Science and Religion: Exploring the spectrum of global perspectives coordinated by the University of Birmingham (UK) with nine universities around the world. Over the next two years, a multidisciplinary team from different areas of the social sciences will deepen the understanding of public perceptions of the relationship between ‘science’ and ‘religion’ in various social and cultural contexts, in religious and non-religious people.

Cecilia Delgado-Molina has a Ph.D. in Political and Social Sciences with orientation in sociology from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and has done research stays with the Ceil Conicet Society, Culture and Religion group in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Religion und Society (CIRRuS) at the University of Bielefeld, Germany; at the University of Utah in the United States and since 2016 is a member of the coordinating team of the Laboratory for the Observation of the Religious Phenomenon in the Contemporary Society of the Social Research Institute at the UNAM.

Her research areas focus on the sociology of culture and religion, the beliefs and identities processes of formation, and qualitative methodologies. She has worked on the intersections between religion and violence, from the structural perspective in the Churches and the State relations, as well as on the role of religious beliefs in the interpretation of borderline experiences in victims of violence. From this perspective, she is developing a line of research on religion and mental health that will be part of her work at ISOR.
