CURA Colloquium | Religion & Empire (Spring 2024)

CURA announces the Spring 2024 colloquium schedule. This year-long conversation brings together an interdisciplinary community of scholars of Religion & Empire. Please register below for the session(s) you plan to attend.

20 years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, scholars of religion are again examining the place of empire in history and international relations. We also live in an age of public religion, with American evangelical Christians and transnational Islamic movements being key international power brokers. What is the relationship between religion and empire? How do religious ideas, and ideas about religion, sustain projects of imperialism? What resources might these traditions offer in surviving and resisting imperial projects? How are religious nationalisms and internationalisms challenging imperial domination?

Meetings take place at the Pardee School of Global Studies, 154 Bay State Road, 2nd floor (Eilts Room) on the dates and times indicated. Please note that reading the paper in advance is required for attendance. The paper(s) will be sent to registered participants in advance of each session.
