Résumé

In the last decades, the body’s role and its agency have gained new centrality in the analysis of the religious experience. Through its connection with materiality, the religious expression surpasses the spiritual to be understood as a chain of relationships and encounters between bodies, objects and sensory stimuli. Accordingly, under the premise of “routes, transfers and intermediality”, this event seeks innovative readings on subjects that discuss, question and rethink dynamics of circulation, transmission and alterity, through an exchange of ideas and objects of study, which crosses borders and disciplines.

Argument

The International Colloquium Gesture and Belief, organized under the framework of the group Religious Practices and Sociabilities (CITCEM), intends to be an international and interdisciplinary platform of discussion for young researchers who carry out their investigation within the Religious Studies. In order to explore and disseminate new and wide-ranging perspectives about the different understandings of the religious phenomenon, this meeting invites contributions from the various fields of Social and Human Sciences, so as to cultivate plural and comparative interpretations.  In the last decades, the body’s role and its agency have gained new centrality in the analysis of the religious experience. Through its connection with materiality, the religious expression surpasses the spiritual to be understood as a chain of relationships and encounters between bodies, objects and sensory stimuli. Accordingly, under the premise of “routes, transfers and intermediality”, this event seeks innovative readings on subjects that discuss, question and rethink dynamics of circulation, transmission and alterity, through an exchange of ideas and objects of study, which crosses borders and disciplines.

Proposals that address any of these topics are particularly welcome: 

  • Sensory stimuli and religious experience
  • Pilgrimages, "romarias" and processions
  • Images and practices
  • The book and the spiritual reading inside and outside the monastic scope
  • Religious syncretism and the new cults of a globalized world
