Religion, Culture, Politics

Religion, Culture, Politics: Works in Progress Seminar

The Religion, Culture, Politics: Works in Progress Seminar's goal is to bring together scholars with interests in the anthropology and sociology of religion, politics and comparative political thought, literary and cultural studies, and theories of religion to share emerging research.  The participants in this interdisciplinary seminar focus their research on a range of regions and a diversity of religious, cultural, and political contexts. The problematic of religion and its place within political and cultural arenas is at the heart of many of the most urgent questions facing humanities scholars today.  It is no accident that a number of scholars in a wide range of disciplines are working at this intersection.

For each of our meetings, a graduate student or faculty member will pre-circulate a chapter-length piece for critical discussion. In the spring of 2011, we will convene a workshop with an invited guest, to be oriented around key theoretical works.
