9.–12.9 International Workshop "New Perspectives on Religion in the Philippines"

— filed under:

From Sept 9-12, 2017, the Department for Comparative Research on Religions organizes an international workshop on religion in the Philippines.

The Philippines has always been a crossroads of diverse religious encounters: between indigenous religions, Islam, Iberian and American Catholicism, Protestantism, indigenous Christian and non-Christian traditions, as well as various Charismatic movements. At the same time, it has been a marginal space, at the geographical margin of Asia and the intellectual margins of scholarship on religion in Southeast Asia and the study of Christianity and Islam. The goal of this project is to contribute to understanding the Philippines not as a marginal space, but as an important node in a global history of transregional and transcontinental religious interactions. We are working towards publishing an extensive edited volume on “New Perspectives on Religion in the Philippines”, where no such volume currently exists.

From September 9–12, 2017, the Department of Religion Studies will hold a first international workshop in Bonn, bringing together potential authors for the planned edited volume.
