Seminar on the Postsecular Conflicts Research Project

9 December 2021, 17.00, FSCIRE, Bologna

On December 9, at 17:00, FSCIRE will host the meeting on the new special number of Confronti and the Postsecular Conflicts Research Project (POSEC), presented by its coordinator, Kristina Stoeckl, Professor at the Department of Sociology at the university of Innsbruck.

The Postsecular Conflicts Research Project explored the paradoxical ascent of Russia and Russian Orthodoxy to become a point of orientation in today’s global culture wars. The central conflicts between social conservatives and progressives today are over questions pertaining to sexuality and gender (homosexuality, gender-rights, feminism), family (definition of family, domestic violence), bioethics (abortion, surrogacy, euthanasia), education (religious subjects at school, sexual education, theory of evolution, homeschooling) and religious freedom (religious symbols in the public space, conscientious objection). The Postsecular Conflicts Research Project, whose main findings have been gathered in this special edition of Confronti, stands for this new direction in the study of religion.

Free admission.
