Research Fellow in French Thought and Religious Studies, University of Cambridge

Empowering Dialogue and Interfaith Networks (EDIN)

Marie Chabbert, PhD, is an interfaith activist and academic affiliated with the Faculty of Divinity and French Department of the University of Cambridge. Her research draws on twentieth- and twenty-first-century French thought to interrogate how the postsecular condition affects traditional categories of thought as well as our way of relating to the world and to each other. In 2017, she received the Emerging Scholar Award of the Religion and Spirituality in Society Research Network for her study of French youth Islamist radicalization and its prevention. Alongside this, Marie is an active member of the French interfaith youth network, Coexister, and serves on the Executive Committee of the European Interfaith Youth Network of Religions for Peace, the largest international coalition of interfaith leaders. Marie is a valued member of EDIN because she combines her interfaith activism with a research work that deconstructs the philosophical tenets of religious dogmatism with a view to fostering religious pluralism and peaceful coexistence.
