Research Unit at the Department of the Study of Religion

The RCC became a Research Unit in 2009 at the Department of the Study of Religion, Faculty of Theology, Aarhus University. It grew out of research priority areas initiated in 2003 (see below) by Armin W. Geertz and Jeppe Sinding Jensen who have been working with cultural psychology and religion since the late 1980s and religion, cognition and culture since 1990. In 2009 Jesper Sørensen was invited to become MINDLab Associate Professor at the RCC. He has worked with the cognitive science of religion since 1995 and specializes in magic and ritual behaviour.
