#CFP – IV Encuentro de Investigadores en Ciencias de las Religiones

Estimados amigos de la AEHRC:

Desde la AJICR os queremos invitar al IV Encuentro de Investigadores en Ciencias de las Religiones que se celebrará este noviembre en la Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

Después de nuestro I Encuentro de Jóvenes Investigadores en Ciencias de las Religiones en 2017, hemos experimentado una creciente participación en nuestros congresos y seminarios por parte de la comunidad científica. Tras aquel primer encuentro nuestra voluntad ha sido generar un espacio de diálogo, debate e intercambio de ideas en torno a los distintos fenómenos religiosos.

Este espacio ha ido aumentándose y en la actualidad supone uno de los encuentros más numerosos que realizamos cada 2 años.

En el pasado encuentro contamos con la presencia de 40 participantes entre ponentes e invitados.

Siguiendo la línea de las pasadas ediciones, se aceptarán propuestas de una amplia variedad de disciplinas científicas, fomentando con ello un diálogo multidisciplinar, interdisciplinar y transversal. Las diversas religiones de la humanidad constituyen un fenómeno complejo y poliédrico que debe ser atendido desde las diferentes metodologías historiográficas: la iconografía e iconología, la semiótica, la literatura, la antropología, los estudios culturales, históricos o filosóficos, etc., bajo el paraguas de sus respectivas disciplinas académicas.

Los/as interesados/as en presentar propuestas inéditas deberán enviar un resumen a la siguiente dirección de correo electrónico: contacto.ejicr@gmail.com

La fecha límite de presentación de inscripciones es el 15 de julio de 2024.

LA AEHRC EN EL Próximo congreso de la European Academy of religion #CFP

LA AEHRC EN EL Próximo congreso de la European Academy of religion #CFP

De parte de Natalia Núñez Bargueño, os dejamos la siguiente información sobre el próximo congreso de la European Academy of Religion, que tendrá lugar en Palermo del 20 al 23 de mayo. Todavía estáis a tiempo de enviar vuestras proposiciones de comunicación.

  1. Paneles organizados por miembros de la AEHRC:

Religion in Transition: Reconsidering the Religious Factor in Third Wave Transitions to Democracy

Julio de la Cueva (Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha)

Massimo De Giuseppe (IULM)

2024 marks the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the third wave of democratization in the world, according to the model proposed by Samuel Huntington in 1991. In 1974, Portugal and Greece embarked on their democratization processes. From Southern Europe, this wave of democratization extended its reach globally, assuming particular significance in Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe (although also in some Asian and African countries).Huntington’s interpretative model implied a pivotal paradigm shift in the study of transitions to democracy. Notably, his framework acknowledged the importance of the religious factor in shaping political change. However, the interplay between religious and political transformations, as well as the roles played by religious actors in democratization processes, remains insufficiently explored.This panel proposes a reconsideration of the impact of the religious factor on transitions to democracy in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s and welcomes contributions on topics related to the connection between religion/s and democratization during this significant period.

Religion in the Anthropocene: New Paradigm Shifts in the Study of Contemporary Religious History (19th–21st centuries)

Natalia Núñez Bargueño (Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha)

Petra Kuivala (Assistant Professor of Global Christianity, School of Theology, University of Eastern Finland)

This panel will explore the new currents for research (ideas, sources, archives, approaches) in the study of contemporary religious history across geographies, denominations, and cultures. We encourage scholars to share their latest findings as well as their ongoing projects. Some of the themes that we propose to discuss are the following:recent history of religious diversity and ecumenical dialogue;the political uses of religion and violence; ecology; gender (femininities, masculinities, non-binary, LGTBQ+, and queer religion);material religion (including the body, sensory religion, devotions, space, and emotions); the interactions between the global, the local, and the national, the transnational as well as the post/de-colonial; the post/secular; theology and religious intellectuals; and the new methodologies and interdisciplinarity at, for example, the intersections of theology and/or religious studies and history, media studies, anthropology, sociology, medicine, economy, and the humanities. 

Unraveling the Complexities of “Non-Religion”: Global Perspectives and Societal Implications

Rafael Ruiz Andrés (Complutense University of Madrid)

Zakaria Sajir (University of Salamanca)

The concept of non-religion presents a unique and intricate landscape within the study of contemporary religious dynamics (Lee 2015; Bullivant 2022). Spanning various aspects from personal identity formation to societal shifts, the exploration of this phenomenon offers critical insights into the evolving patterns of secularisation. In this vein, our panel seeks to dissect and analyse the multifarious dimensions of non-religion (Wilkins-Laflamme 2023), informed by seminal research and contemporary findings in the field. We therefore propose a series of debates to unravel the complexities and nuances of non-religion, examining its global context, sociocultural dynamics, intersectionality, and its interplay with education and post-secular trends. Defining “No Religion” Globally: Exploring how cultures interpret non-religious identities, focusing on the impact of religious literacy on these definitions. Sociocultural and Generational Dynamics: Analyzing how globalization, technology, and educational changes affect non-religious identities, with a focus on generational differences and broader sociocultural elements. Intersectionality and Demographics: Discussing how factors like age, gender, race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status shape non-religion experiences and identities, aiming to understand the diversity within these groups.Post-Secularity and Non-Religious Pluralism: Investigating “no religion” in a post-secular context. Disciplinary tags: Sociology of Religion, Anthropology, History, Cultural Studies, Religious Studies, Sociology of Immigration.

Education, Culture And Civic Action Of Catholic Women: Paradigm Changes 

(closed panel)

Mercedes Montero (Universidad de Navarra)

Beatriz Comella (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia)

During  the  19th  century,  what  has  been  called  “the  apostasy  of  the  masses”  occurred  in  Western  culture,  a  consequence  of  the  process  of  secularization  present  in  Europe  since  the  17th  century. This  phenomenon  also  took  place  in  Catholic countries, affecting men more than women (Camino, 2023). Consequently, there were many Catholic women who in that environment decided to intervene in public life (Romeo, 2017). They understood that the most direct way to do this was through the education of girls and young people, from the most humble strata of society, to the few intellectual forums in which they were admitted (Flecha, 2013). Thus began an unstoppable process, since the 19th century, in which women, in addition to defending the rights of God and the Church, simultaneously promoted education and female civic and social action in the public space. The most profound way to do this was through teaching, since this was an essential condition for their presence in society on equality with men. Catholic activists and thinkers from several countries changed a paradigm or scheme fixed for several centuries: the one that confined women in private space and only admitted men in public affairs. Confessional political  regimes,  such  as  that  of  Franco’s  Spain,  made  the  wait  longer  for  women  (Ruiz  Franco,  2007).  In  this  panel  –  although  it studies  other  countries- there is more presence  of works on Spain. The first paradigm shift that it includes is that of teaching for girls from the working classes that was carried out, for the first time in Spain, by the Royal Association of Sunday Schools of Madrid (1857), made up of women. Until then, only poor orphans had been cared for. Now we move from strict Christian charity to the education of the working class, which the liberal State did not take care of. Another example is that of the Royal College of Santa Isabel, run by the nuns of the Assumption, which went from being a boarding school for girls from wealthy families to a co-ed concerted center for children from low-income families in the interracial neighborhood of Lavapiés. This evolution began when the nuns of the Assumption, after the Second Vatican Council, considered a paradigm shift to serve disadvantaged classes. The  following  work  studies  the  modification  of  schemes  that English  colonization  in  Africa  meant  for  the  Catholic  (and  also  Anglican)  nuns  who  worked  with native  women  in  those  latitudes  is  studied;  They expanded their role as religious, forging the dignity of these women as human beings and their feminine identity. The panel will also discuss the case of intellectual Catholic women who worked in secularized enviroments. In Spain, for example, the case of María de Maeztu, who knew how to handle in secular environments without complexes; or the Spanish women jurists, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, who changed laws during the 20th century to favor the full development of women in public life. For her part, Edith Stein faced some similar; She was a philosopher and feminist activist, a Jewish convert to Catholicism, who contributed the anthropological vision of Catholic women to feminist debates in the Germany of her time: a contribution that no one counted on. Finally, two works on women of Opus Dei, show how the paradigm shift can be seen in the capillary approach – one by one – and not massive or selective, of the task of evangelization in the female sphere.

Embracing Taboos in/and Challenging Paradigms: Perspectives from Theology and Religious Studies

Jens Van Rompaey (KU Leuven)

According to Thomas Kuhn in his 1962 The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, paradigms define what is made visible and invisible. Moreover, in Kuhn’s understanding of paradigms, an important part of scientific practice is “fixing or manipulating” them to cope with possible challenges. This often goes on up until the point the paradigms become untenable. However, much of what eventually leads to the demise of a paradigm is initially invisible, uncomfortable, and undesirable, Kuhn calls them “anomalies”. In  the field  of  theology  and  religious  studies,  scholars  still find  many  anomalies  that  challenge  paradigms  and  some  of  them  are  even  resolutely  shoved  aside  as  taboo.  At  the  same  time,  many  topics  that  were  once  considered  taboo  are  now gradually receiving greater academic attention. This panel explores the transformative or challenging nature of embracing what is often set aside. It delves into anomalies and taboos to focus on their implications for the paradigm. This panel invites papers that bring up experiences and insights that are often invisible or out-of-paradigm. How do taboos and anomalies challenge paradigms in theology and religious studies? How does embracing or addressing taboo-subjects challenge the paradigms that guide and influence people’s lives and their faith? What conservative forces do researchers encounter when dealing with taboo-topics? In collaboration with the Center for History of Contemporary Religious Identities and Ideas, KU Leuven.

Call for Papers: the Yearbook of the Finnish Society of Church History: Finland and Global Christianity.

Call for Papers: the Yearbook of the Finnish Society of Church History: Finland and Global Christianity.

Call for Papers 

We invite scholars to submit article proposals to the Yearbook of the Finnish Society of Church History under the topic Finland and Global Christianity

At the heart of the forthcoming publication is the study of Christianity as a global and transnational phenomenon. The book will examine how Finland has joined the field of global Christianity, broadly understood and from a long historical perspective. The proposed articles may examine Christian thought as well as Christian churches, institutions, communities, and individuals. They may cover religious, geographical, cultural, and human interactions across the centuries. The articles may analyze, for example, the connections and networks of Finnish Christianity to other countries, cultural exchange, the distribution of religious power, privilege, and resources as well as the histories of colonialism and missionary activities. We also welcome articles on ecumenical and interreligious dialogue. In addition, the contributions may discuss Finnish Christianity in the context of international politics and humanitarian activities through topics such as migration and displacement. 

The articles may also examine how Finland and Finnish Christianity have been discussed in the international sphere by religious, political, or social actors. Such perspectives can shed light on how Finland has been portrayed or placed within the field of global Christianity beyond the Finnish perspectives. We are interested in both long historical trajectories as well as recent or emerging topics; in particular, we look forward to exploring topics, historical sources, and approaches that change, complement, or challenge our existing knowledge and established scholarly paradigms. 

Please send an abstract of your proposed article via email (vuosikirja [at] skhs.fi) by November 17, 2023. The proposal should include the topic of the article and discuss its originality or novelty. The results of the selection process will be communicated to the authors by the end of November. The complete manuscript must be submitted by March 29, 2024, after which it is processed through a double-blind peer review. We welcome articles in English, Swedish, and Finnish. 

We also publish surveys, reports, and reviews of scholarly books and related art and culture, which must be submitted by August 31, 2024. Please contact the editors beforehand for further details and to arrange for review copies. 

The Yearbook of the FSCH is a traditional journal of church history published since 1919. Its articles go through a peer review process in accordance with the criteria of the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies. The yearbook’s release date is January 19, the Society’s annual festival and the feast of Saint Henry (Henricus).
