Dr Carlos Nazario Mora Duro holds a PhD in Social Science with speciality in Sociology from The College of Mexico (El Colmex) and obtained an M.Sc. in Social Sciences at the Latin-American Faculty of Social Sciences (Flacso México).

Since 2018, he has been a Postdoctoral Research at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Germany, conducting a project on the migration experience of Mexicans in the city of Berlin. 

His main areas of interest are the sociology of religion and the process of secularisation; the narratives of migration and integration; and the use of technologies of information and social networks in social and cultural changes. During his PhD dissertation he analysed the pertinence of secularisation in Mexico through a qualitative approach about Religiously Unaffiliated in urban and rural-indigenous contexts.

Presently, he has started a project which discusses the desecularisation of the State in Latin America in the context of critical junctures. This project will analyse the case of the new administration of Mexico and its associations with religious actors and organisations, at The Centre for Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences: “Multiple Secularities – Beyond the West, Beyond Modernities” at Leipzig University.
