It is the aim of the interdisciplinary UCSIA summer school to investigate the dynamic interaction between macro-level developments and bottom-up approaches in the fields of religion and culture and the way in which this may induce innovative synergies and/or provoke new and old forms of confrontation.
The UCSIA Summer School 2020 is the second edition of the three-year cycle that focuses on the impact of mobility on the global and local religious landscape.
Mobility has long defined religious traditions and their vital presence in our contemporary world. This one-week summer school will focus on the diversity of religions on the move and the politics of religion and religious difference. We welcome papers based on original research that examine these themes from a variety of disciplines including anthropology, history, sociology, political science, and theology. Papers may address, but are not limited to the following questions:
