Mie Inouye holds a B.A. from Tufts University and an M.A. in Political Science from the University of Toronto. Her primary subfield is Political Theory, and her research interests lie in religion and politics, science studies and secularization theory.
She is particularly interested in the concepts of enchantment and disenchantment as they are deployed within accounts of secularization. Her current project traces the conceptual history of enchantment through European social theory and philosophy, with the aim of illuminating contemporary debates about the nature of religion and the relationship between the human and the nonhuman in modernity.
