Kim Knott

Kim Knott is Director of the AHRC "Diasporas, Migration and Identities" Programme (a £6.3 million investment), overseeing some fifty small and large projects, workshops and networks.  She combines this with her role as Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Leeds where she continues to manage her own research projects, to teach research methods and to supervise student projects on religious diasporic communities, and religion, space and locality.  Her first book was on what would now be called the "Hindu diaspora" in Britain (1986); her most recent on is The Location of Religion: A Spatial Analysis (2005).  Her work has included articles over many years on migration, ethnicity, identity and religion, and more recently space and place.  She has good contacts with scholars internationally as a result of her program directorship and roles in the International Association for the History of Religions and European Association for the Study of Religions.
