Cassie Adcock is particularly interested in how ways of talking about religion and the secular shape modern political culture.

By exploring India’s distinctive controversies over religion and politics, Adcock's research helps us understand how India is secular, differently. Her work contributes to the field of comparative secularisms among scholars of religion, anthropology, law, political science, and history.
