ADDITIONAL UPCOMING OPPORTUNITIES OF INTEREST

2016 UCSIA SUMMER SCHOOL ON “RELIGION, CULTURE, AND SOCIETY: ENTANGLEMENT AND CONFRONTATION” 
Antwerp, Belgium
Applications due May 15, 2016 

Participation and stay for young scholars and researchers are FREE OF CHARGE! Participants should pay for their own travel expenses to Antwerp.

This summer school is a one-week course taking place from Sunday 28 of August until Sunday 3 of September 2016 (dates of arrival and departure). This year the programme will focus on the topic of Public Religion, Spirituality and Lifestyle.
In this year’s programme, the summer school will discuss issues and questions arising from new emerging forms of religion and the way these emerge, contrast and complement existing religious histories and structures.

‘Spiritual but not religious’ youth, Green Muslims, westerners converting to Buddhism and New Age movements, the re-emergence of Confucianism in Communist China, but also sects, the anti-vaccination movement and (g)local jihadists, these examples show how different forms of religion and religiosity meander through social realities today. On the one hand these (new) spiritual movements may want to move away from fixed dogmatic religious formulations and embedded power structures to give form to a deep desire to live a meaningful life, at the other hand they may also look for ways to contest expressions of modern day life. At the same time also organized religions look at ways to give an answer to contemporary issues by renewing their religious traditions, dogmas and structures.
