The Pierce Lecture Series brings Mark Juergensmeyer to Oxford to present "Does Religion Cause Violence?" He is professor of global studies, professor of sociology, Kundan Kaur Kapany Chair of Global and Sikh Studies, and affiliate professor of religious studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

He was the founding director of the Global and International Studies Program and the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies. Juergensmeyer is an expert on religious violence, conflict resolution and South Asian religion and politics, and has published more than two hundred articles and twenty books, including the co-authored God in the Tumult of the Global Square: Religion in Global Civil Society (University of California Press, 2015; co-authored with Dinah Griego and John Soboslai).

His widely-read Terror in the Mind of God: The Global Rise of Religious Violence (University of California Press, fourth edition forthcoming in 2017), is based on interviews with religious activists around the world—including Jihadi activists, ISIS supporters, leaders of Hamas, and abortion clinic bombers in the United States.
