Résumé

Established researchers on the field develop specific topics and cases, students have the possibility to present their own work and discuss their ideas in a relaxed and open atmosphere and within a multidisciplinary framework.

Presentation

Religion in Europe has taken an unexpected turn. Although European societies - both in the East and in the West - were once looked upon as highly secular­ised and unchurched, expressions of Christianity, Islam and “new” religions are asserting themselves in the public domain. The reappearance of religion has far-reaching social and political implications in all European countries. These need to be properly understood. It is high time to question the idea of a disenchanted Europe, and to take a closer look at the complicated historical relationship between religion and modernity.

The 2012 Summer School on Religion, Culture and Society in Europe (1750-) will focus explicitly on this issue. It will offer its students a solid introduction to the very different domains in which religion has influenced, (re)shaped and even embodied the modernisation process, but also the continuous adapta­tion and transformation processes of the religious domain itself, thus finding a clear contemporary reflection in Europe’s cultural identities. The much-disputed concept of modernity and its fundamental ambiguities will also be developed.

Programme

English will be used as the operational language of the course and as the language of instruction.
