Professor John Wolffe

Profile summary

Professional biography

I was an undergraduate  and doctoral student at the University of Oxford, then held temporary posts at the University of York for 5 years. I first joined the Open University as an Associate Lecturer in the Yorkshire region in 1990, and joined the full time staff as Lecturer in Religious Studies in 1990. I was promoted Professor of Religious History in 2004. During my years at the OU I have been a member of numerous course teams and have chaired two production course teams in Religious Studies (AA313 Religion in Victorian Britain) and AA307 Religion in History. I have also served two terms as Sub/Associate Dean (Research) in Arts from 1994 to 1997 and from 2007 to 2009. I was Head of Department of Religious Studies from 1998 to 2001 and from 2006 to 2007. Between 2009 and 2011 I led the initial development of the Digital Humanities thematic research network.  I currently have significant external roles as President of the Ecclesiastical History Society and a member of the REF sub-panel for Theology and Religious Studies.

Research interests

My research interests relate to British (and to some extent English-speaking world) religious history since the late 18th century. More specifically I am interested in anti-Catholicism, evangelicalism, responses to prominent deaths, and other interfaces between religion and nationalism/national identity. In recent years I have led the following major externally-funded projects:

  • Building on History, funded by the AHRC for knowledge exchange/public engagement projects in collaboration with the Anglican Diocese of London and other religious groups in the London area. For further information see www.open.ac.uk/buildingonhistory and www.open.ac.uk/arts/religion-in-london.
  • Protestant-Catholic Conflict: Historical Perspectives and Contemporary Realities funded by the RCUK Global Uncertainties programme. For further information see www.open.ac.uk/Arts/protestant-catholic-conflict and  www.niassembly.gov.uk/Documents/RaISe/.../wolffe241013.pdf  for a briefing paper recently prepared for the Northern Ireland Assembly which summarizes some key insights from the project. 
  • I currently hold a Global Uncertainties ‘Leadership Fellowship, entitled Religion, Martyrdom and Global Uncertainties entailing endeavours to take and overview of the interface between ‘religion’ and ‘security’ alongside new research on ideas of martyrdom/sacrificial death, engaging with issues raised by the centenary of the First World War.
