International Society for the Sociology of Religion 36th Conference

July 12 - July 15, 2021

 

Religion in Global/Local Perspective: Diffusion, Migration, Transformations

The content, boundaries and role of religion vary across the globe. Globalization brings about the encounter and transfiguration of worldviews and ways of life and yet religion, like much else, is a glocal phenomenon, as the local context is still determinative. Migration, labor mobility and travel lead to the diffusion of religion, but also to the questioning of religious boundaries and their potential transformations. The difference between religion, spirituality, culture, and nonreligion become themselves diffuse and even blurred. People feel, rediscover and redefine their religious and non-religious horizons in new ways through their everyday lives. This conference highlights the transnational, global and local character of these issues and aims to explore the nature of religious diffusion, encounters, and transformations.

Consider Our Environment

As international conferences like this require a lot of traveling, and alternatives for traveling by air are scarce, you may want to consider the following suggestions:

  1. Avoid multiple hops
  2. Don't fly business class
  3. Pack light
  4. Choose vegetarian
  5. Consider carbon offsets and invest in ecological projects.
