Dr. Andrea Cassatella

Dr. Cassatella completed his PhD studies at the University of Toronto, and is currently pursuing his postdoctoral research in Political Theory at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research focuses on the challenge that the global resurgence of religion poses to Western understandings and political forms. Working at the frontiers between political theory, continental philosophy and postcolonial studies of religion, Dr. Cassatella hopes to illuminate some key unquestioned assumptions and political implications of modern secularism.
