Professor Pamela Slotte Russo appointed McDonald Distinguished Senior Fellow
The selected researchers come from elite universities in the United States and Europe and will collaborate during the period 2024-2029 at Emory’s Center for the Study of Law and Religion, a world leader in the field of law and religion.
Pamela Slotte Russo is Professor of Religion and Law at Åbo Akademi University and a distinguished researcher and project leader at several prestigious national and international research institutions.
In her research, Slotte Russo has explored the intersections of law, ethics and religion using methods from critical legal studies, political theology, intellectual history and postcolonial studies. Her publications in the area of law and religion have examined, among other things, how different ideas about religious and non-religious beliefs structure national and international legal reasoning and human rights discourse.
Based at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, the McDonald Distinguished Senior Fellowship Programme brings together more than a dozen distinguished scholars from the Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox Christian traditions with the mission of promoting leading research in the field of law and religion. The scholars in the programme will individually and collectively produce books, chapters, articles and events and contribute to the activities of the CSLR.
