Summary

Session 19, Meeting of the International Society for the Sociology of Religion (27th-30th June 2013). Coordinators : Yannick Fer et Gwendoline Malogne-Fer.

Announcement

Argument

Migrations and the strength of the “Christianity of the South” have deeply transformed the physiognomy and the forms of governance of mainstream churches, Protestant, Anglican and Catholic. Theological, cultural and linguistic diversity at the national scale is interwoven with the diversity of personal itineraries and socio-economic heterogeneity within local communities, especially in urban setting. This session aims to analyse the representations of “differences”, the ways in which these pluralities are managed by national institutions, federations of churches and local urban communities, and to question areas of tensions, compromises and new forms of community sociability
