    The Ganden Phrodang Army and Buddhist

    TibArmy symposium

    A number of publications have addressed the question of the coexistence of Buddhism and violence, ultimately concluding that there is no paradox between the two. In various cultural and historical contexts in Asia, the presence of Buddhism as the state religion has often involved the recourse to violence and the maintenance of an army as a necessity of government. Likewise, the policies of Buddhist rulers have repeatedly invoked religious reasons to justify military activities aimed at defending the Dharma. We invite research contributions based on primary sources illustrating the role of the Tibetan Army vis-à-vis different aspects of the Buddhist religion during the historical period of the Ganden Phodrang.

    Indonesian Exceptionalism: Values and Morals of the Middle Ground

    ‘Exceptionalism’ is a borrowed political term that implies that a country or entity is somehow special. Indonesia is not small. Indonesia is not poor in cultures, religions, society, or ethnic groups. Indonesia is not unimportant economically, regionally, or politically. Historically, Indonesia has always been an exceptional place. Indonesia as ‘imagined community’ continues to be an ongoing process. Various questions that can be raised include: What are relevant Indonesian values and morals for maintaining Indonesia’s competitiveness in the global world? What is religion’s contribution to forming agreed values and ethics? To what extent is there an Indonesian contribution in balancing Islamic values and democratic practices? How do religious values impact the ethics of state governance?

    The Sacred in Conflict

    Disagreements between and within Religions

    Disagreements arise between different religions, but can also erupt within various branches of the same faith, and the dissociation of external and internal adversaries often appears linked. Religiously motivated confrontation has continuously shaped people’s ideological landscapes and everyday realities, often causing deeply rooted conflicts, violent clashes, and ferocious infighting, which can persist throughout centuries. Which motivations inform the justification for religious beliefs of individuals and groups? What manner of duties do believers assume in the face of impending conflicts? What justifies religious institutions? What is the role of the orthodox-heterodox binary in inter- and intra-confessional disagreements?

    Religion in Europe, religion and Europe

    Recent debates have focused on the institutional issues raised by the relations between religion and European integration, such as the Churches’ participation in EU governance, references to the Christian heritage of Europe in the preamble of the Constitutional treaty, or the revival of denominational powers within national arenas. Meanwhile, belief is nowadays developing in Europe essentially through individualized and deregulated forms which are no longer under the control and the mediation of organized political and spiritual institutions. This workshop aims to analyse both institutional and non-institutional religious phenomena in their interaction with the Europeanization process experienced by State members.

    European Muslim's Participation in (New) Media

    The increasing growth of the Internet is reshaping Islamic communities worldwide. Non-conventional media and social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are becoming more popular among the Muslim youth as among all parts of the society. The new channels of information and news attract new Muslim publics in Europe. The profile of the people using these networks range from college students to Islamic intellectual authorities. Such an easy and speedy way of connecting to millions of people across the globe also attracts the attention of social movements, which utilize these networks to spread their message to a wider public. Many Muslim networks and social movements, political leaders, Islamic institutions and authorities use these new media spaces to address wider Muslim and also non-Muslim communities, it is not uncommon that they also address and reach certain so-called radical groups.

    Theologies of revolution

    Medieval to Modern Europe

    Modern researchers still struggle to balance emic and etic explanations of revolutionary action, yet at least since the XIVth century, movements and thinkers began to arise which clearly defined their violent, revolutionary action in theological terms, or terms in which the “religious” and “political” are not clearly separate spheres of existence. Such movements built and innovated upon existing understandings of matters like the human condition and history, the perfectability of the world, and the human relationship with God, to not merely legitimize violent action (post facto), but to motivate, guide, and inform it along the way. Our workshop aims to discuss and elaborate upon these and other themes related to revolution from the medieval to the modern periods in Europe, west and east. We hope to address the implications of re-opening historical debate on revolutions which take seriously the input of political-religion.

    Les effets de la première guerre mondiale sur les églises chrétiennes

    11 November 1918 saw the end of the First World War, known at the time as the “Great War” (1914-1918) for its global scale, extreme destructivity and unseen casualty rates. On the one hand, wars evoke heroism and patriotism and bring people and groups to alter their mental boundaries and abilities. On the other hand, wars also elicit hatred, envy and violent behaviour, the settling of hidden accounts, the abandonment of ethical standards, and deep divisions and confrontations between families and societies. Since effects of the first world conflict were enormous and the shock waves were felt for years and generations to come, the question arises about the impact of the Great War on religion and the established churches.

    Instances of power and cultural discourse

    Intercultural exchange in the age of globalization, second edition

    In the context of today’s social, political and economic changes, power is one of the governing principles of culture. Power comes in many shapes and sizes and it manifests itself under various forms: it can be tyrannical or a combination of forces (Foucault); it can be charismatic, traditional and rational (Weber) or the opposite – manipulative; it can also appear as a system of diluted forces that spring from the “social field” (Bourdieu); it can remain in the unconscious or it can manifest itself in the speech act. However it may appear, it has become clear that power shapes the course of the creation, interpretation and analysis of literary texts and other cultural products.

    Sharing meals. Social aspects of eating and cooking together

    Eating involves many other dimensions than just ingesting food. It is especially a social act, as it involves the social position and relationships of the individual in all of the included practices: supplying, cooking, dressing, ordering, ingesting, clearing, washing-up, managing left-overs, etc.  This symposium offers to explore, with a social science approach, the different dimensions associated with sharing meals (non exhaustive): Cultural differences in the manners of sharing meals; Specificity of the sharing of cooking times regarding the sharing of meal times; Use of commensality as a social action mean; Symbolic representation of the benefits of sharing meals (psychological, physiological, social); Comparison of meals regarding other eating times (snacking); Political/Diplomatic use of meals; Organization, perception and role of meals in institutions (school canteens, hospital, nursing homes, prisons…).

    Les missions allemandes : leur liquidation et leur résilience 1914-1939

    Ce 36e colloque du CREDIC s'inscrit dans le cycle des commémorations de la « Grande Guerre ». Quel a été son impact sur les missions chrétiennes allemandes, catholiques et protestantes, et sur les Églises et les œuvres locales suscitées par leur action ? Dès le déclenchement des hostilités les personnels missionnaires de nationalité allemande ont dû cesser leurs activités et quitter leurs postes. Leurs possessions et leurs instruments de travail ont été séquestrés ou réquisitionnés. La liquidation des missions allemandes n'a pas empêché l'héritage allemand de se faire sentir et parfois même d'être reconnu par les nouveaux maîtres des territoires. De plus, les sciences missionnaires allemandes déjà très avancées avant la guerre ont continué à se développer ; elles ont été entendues dans le débat international sur la mission à travers les grandes conférences missionnaires mondiales (Jérusalem 1928, Tambaram 1938) et dans le développement de la pensée missionnaire catholique. On peut parler de résilience des missions allemandes au-delà et à travers leurs tribulations.

    From sacralization to profanation

    The second edition of Bucharest workshop aims to become an open platform for debating the relations between sacralization and profanation, as they are (inter)mediated by media and popular culture. The participants are invited to address issues such as: the mediatization of religion and politics; the mitologization of the journalistic discourse and the sacralization of a reality through it; the use of religious archetypes in media, advertising and popular culture with reference to non-religious figures and events; online religion and media; media rituals as means for both sacralization and profanation; religious/sacred secrets and their publicization; para-religions/invented religions/fiction based religions (as if religions).

    Religious pathways to better futures

    Religious groups in Africa are not only an important source of imaginations of the future they are also remarkably active in their efforts to realize them. Thereby different religious groups articulate quite different visions on the future of their society, of Africa, the world or of mankind and follow different ways to pursue their goals: some groups might opt for public prayers, some for violence, some see in education the best way to realize their visions, some form political parties, and still others search for support in transnational networks or establish faith-based-organizations and try to link their future imaginaries to those of the donors in the world of development. Thus, looking at differing religious visions on the future and at the ways they are translated into practice, raises questions about the forms of public religion and interest articulation in a national and transnational setting as well as questions about religious diversity within a society.
