ISRLC - Conference oct. 2012
The 16th Biennial Conference for the International Society for Religion, Literature and Culture
The 16th Biennial Conference for the International Society for Religion, Literature and Culture will take place 19 - 21 October 2012 at the Faculty of Theology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
The conference takes place in collaboration with TRAMS, the doctoral training programme in Transnational and Migration Studies at the Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen.
Conference theme: Cultures of Transition: Presence, Absence, Memory
Today, culture is largely understood to be in transition. While national, regional, religious and local cultures had previously been described, in their various forms, as more or less stable entities, they are now increasingly perceived as determined by developments, influences, changes and conflicts related to secularisation, industrialisation, globalisation, migrations of various kinds, and many other politico-economic, cultural and religious factors.
