  Add to Calendar 2013-05-31 9:00 2013-06-01 19:00 Europe/Paris Beyond critique. New approaches in the study of religion and the secular. ReligioWest workshop

This is a high-level research workshop which gathers renowned scholars from political sciences, international relations, sociology/anthropology for a reflection on ways in which religion is “operationalized” in research and with the aim to reflect upon the theoretical and methodological approaches among a variety of disciplines and look for concrete new ways of approaching religion “beyond critique”.
The focus in this workshop therefore lies precisely on “new approaches” rather than “critique of” religion and secularism:
•examine existing ways of describing and defining religion as implied in the religion-secularism-debates of the last decades
•look for concrete ways (methodology, interdisciplinarity) to respond to the terminological and theoretical vagueness of religion;
•suggest new ways of talking about religion in order to frame our normative and theoretical debates.
