Lieu : Centre judiciaire, Faculté de droit, local A9-130
Diffusion simultanée sur Zoom (lien ci-dessous)

L’arrivée de près de deux mille missionnaires catholiques canadiens en Amérique latine dans les années 1960 a transformé l’Église missionnaire au Québec; l’institution les représentants, l’Entraide missionnaire, s’alignant progressivement sur la Théologie de la libération qui prônait une plus grande justice pour les populations marginalisées et appauvries comme la plupart de ceux et celles qui sont allés en Amérique latine, une politisation du missionnariat qui a causé bien des remous au sein des communautés religieuses. Ce documentaire donne la parole à ces missionnaires qui ont œuvré en faveur des droits de la personne.

Inscription obligatoire, 35 places disponibles. Envoyez votre demande d’inscription à l’adresse suivante : sodrus@usherbrooke.ca.

The Ritual Year hosts its next Seasonal Webinar.

The Spring 2021 Webinar will take place on Monday, 5 April 2021, 11:00 Tallinn time (08:00 GMT) via MS Teams.

Anna Muradova an Independent Researcher from Tbilisi (Georgia), will give a talk on: Breton Christmas and other holidays in Ekaterina Balabanova’s traveler notes.

Ekaterina Balobanova (1847 – 1927) was the first Russian specialist in Celtic Studies. Her deep knowledge of Celtic literature and local traditions was due to her studies at the Sorbonne and Heidelberg University, and her travels in French Brittany in the 1860s. She is however, not considered to be an ethnologist, nor a linguist. Her writing about Breton’s oral literature and traditions was published as a traveler’s notes or a retelling of local legends and appears to be a literary creation rather than a result of any research. Her book The story of my travels and adventures is of particular interest for modern researchers due to the description of various local celebrations, including St John’s Day and Christmas.

The webinar and the discussions will be moderated by Irina Sedakova and Mare Koiva.
As usual, our e-meeting will be hosted by the Estonian Literary Museum and the Centre of Excellence in Estonian Studies (Tartu).

For participation, please write to ritualyear@siefhome.org.

You will be sent a link that will be activated half-an-hour before the event.

The event poster will soon be posted on our Facebook page and our SIEF site.

Looking forward to seeing you again,
Yours,

Webinar: Quali-Quantitative Research on Religiosity in Italy

RICERCA QUALI-QUANTITATIVA SULLA RELIGIOSITÀ IN ITALIA

Webinars di presentazione delle pubblicazioni

(con il patrocinio dell’Associazione Italiana di Sociologia e delle Sezioni di Metodologia e Sociologia della Religione)

Ventidue anni dopo la ricerca su La religiosità in Italia (V. Cesareo, R. Cipriani, F. Garelli, C. Lanzetti, G. Rovati: Mondadori, Milano, 1995), l’indagine condotta nel 2017 riguarda 3238 intervistati con questionario e 164 soggetti (opportunamente selezionati) interpellati con interviste aperte (tipo UNI) o semidirettive (tipo MIX).

La stratificazione del campione qualitativo ha riguardato tre categorie relative al titolo di studio (livello dell’obbligo, diploma medio-superiore, laurea), alla distinzione di genere, alla residenza (piccoli comuni, comuni medi, grandi città), alla distribuzione geografica (nord, centro, sud e isole) ed all’età (giovani, adulti, anziani). Si è testata la soluzione di un’intervista completamente aperta, senza domande predefinite (tipo UNI): per quasi la metà del campione, cioè 78 casi, gli intervistatori hanno cercato di ottenere narrazioni, riflessioni, valutazioni ed interpretazioni non sollecitate attraverso domande specifiche sulla religiosità; per gli altri 86 soggetti consultati, la prima parte dell’intervista è stata interamente libera e la seconda ha riguardato alcuni concetti-stimoli (tipo MIX): la vita quotidiana e festiva, la felicità ed il dolore, la vita e la morte, Dio, la preghiera, le istituzioni religiose e papa Francesco.

I risultati dell’analisi qualitativa sono stati corroborati anche da sofisticati strumenti analitici (alcuni anche quantitativi), tra cui: il programma T2K (Text to Knowledge), l’analisi delle corrispondenze lessicali, la procedura VoSpec (Vocabulaire Spécifique des Groupes d’individus), la social network analysis e la grounded theory. Inoltre un foglio di analisi simile ad un questionario semi-strutturato è stato applicato ai testi delle interviste, con l’intenzione di individuare modelli, valori e rappresentazioni ricorrenti.

In definitiva è stata implementata una serie di soluzioni che rientrano fra i mixed methods.

Life on the Breadline End of Project Conference

Life on the Breadline End of Project Conference – online, 24-25th June 2021, 10am to 4.15pm UK-time

A two-day online conference from the Life on the Breadline project team as the culmination of three years of research into Christian responses to UK poverty in the context of austerity.

The conference will combine sessions with presentations and Q&A, and interactive workshops.  Sessions at the conference will include presentations from the Life on the Breadline project team – Chris Shannahan, Robert Beckford, Peter Scott and Stephanie Denning – on the research findings, plus interactive workshops on researching poverty, asset-based community development, and Black Church responses to austerity, and guest speakers Dr Naomi Maynard (Together Liverpool) and P​rofessor Anthony Reddie (University of Oxford and University of South Africa).  At the conference we will also be launching the Anti-Poverty Charter which is being developed in consultation with research participants in the Life on the Breadline research.

The anticipated audience for the conference is theology and social science academics, church leaders, and practitioners in church and poverty response settings.  The majority of sessions are aimed at all three audiences, and the target audience is noted alongside each session in the provisional conference programme.

Book launch: Islam and the Liberal State

Online event: Thu, 22 April 2021, 17:00 – 18:30 BST

You are warmly invited to the launch of Stephen H. Jones’s book ‘Islam and the Liberal State’, published by IB Tauris in November 2020. In the book Jones narrates a gradual but, he argues, decisive shift in British Islamic institutions since Muslims settled in the UK in large numbers in the 1950s. Drawing on this narrative, he makes the case for a variety of liberalism that is open to the expression of religious arguments in public and to associations between religious groups and the state.

The event will be chaired by Daniel Nilsson DeHanas and will feature an introduction from the author as well as panel responses from Alyaa Ebbiary, Yahya Birt and Khadijah Elshayyal.

(Con)spirituality, Science and COVID-19 Colloquium

25-26 March, 5pm, AEDT
Hosted by Deakin University and Western Sydney University

(Con)spirituality – the merger of conspiracy theories and spirituality – has attracted significant media and academic attention globally during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This colloquium is the first to bring together leading scholars and practitioners from the UK, EU, USA, Canada and Australia – including:

  • Professor David Voas (University College London),
  • Professor Paul Bramadat (University of Victoria),
  • Associate Professor Mar Griera (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona),
  • Professor Cristina Rocha (Western Sydney University), and
  • Derek Beres, Matthew Remski, and Julian Walker of Conspirituality.net

They will examine themes of (con)spirituality, science, QAnon, the Far Right, vaccine hesitancy and COVID-19.

Ward and Voas used the term conspirituality in 2011, to describe the merger of New Age spirituality and conspiracy theories. This colloquium seeks to provide a deeper understanding of this phenomena during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to illuminate the internal diversities and complexities within conspirituality and vaccine hesitancy. We therefore bracket the ‘con’, as the colloquium will investigate a wide spectrum of spiritual beliefs and practices that co-opt or critique scientific orthodoxy, including those that are non-controversial, those that may indeed be ‘cons’, and those that adhere to conspiracy theories and pose significant risks to society.

Call for Papers: Ecclesiology & Ethnography Conference 2021

Call for Papers: Durham 2021

Ecclesiology and Ethnography Conference,
Durham University, 21st-23rd September 2021

This conference is part of The Network for Ecclesiology & Ethnography, which seeks to draw together scholars working with theological approaches to qualitative research on the Christian Church. We welcome papers that explore the dynamic relationship between the theological and the lived-in ecclesiology. It is a wide-ranging conference, and part of the joy is discovering a diversity of specialisms. Past papers have included ethnography, systematic theology, ecclesiology, practical theology and social science approaches. Attendees range from senior scholars to doctoral students and local ministers. This is also an excellent place to present as a post graduate or early career researcher, or as a pastor/scholar in ministry. Learning is generously shared and critiques are supportive.

There are three types of paper sessions at the Durham Conference:

  • Plenary Sessions (60 minutes)
  • Track Sessions (45 minutes)
  • Seminar Sessions (30 minutes)

Out of all the submitted papers, the conference committee selects 5 – 8 Keynote Papers for the Plenary Sessions. The Keynote Papers are selected based on quality (level of completion, originality, etc.), relevance (thematic, theoretical, methodological, etc.), and representation (nationality, gender, etc.).

The Track Sessions are for Researchers holding a PhD (or equivalent) whereas the Seminar Sessions are for PhD-students and Practitioners. In recent years we have been able to make space for all the submitted papers. In the event of more papers than the time allows for, a waiting list will be organized.

Please note: we will communicate in a timely fashion any information regarding the impact of COVID restrictions. Please make arrangements according to international travel regulations. If we are unable to meet in person, we will hold an online conference or a blended conference. In these circumstances, we will adapt the conference and presentation of papers accordingly.

How to submit a paper proposal for The Durham Conference
  1. Fill out the electronic form, including a short paper proposal.
  2. Wait for a response. You should receive a response within a week. If, for any reason, you do not receive feedback within reasonable time – human and digital errors do occur, unfortunately – please contact the program coordinator at Knut.Tveitereid@mf.no.
  3. Remember to register. If your paper is accepted for presentation, you still have to register for the conference. After you have registered, your paper is formally accepted for presentation.
How to present a paper at The Durham Conference

By September 1st you should submit your paper in full text. Most papers tend to be 10–15 pages. All full text papers will be circulated to all registered participants a week ahead of the conference.

When presenting your paper, please leave approximately half the session’s allotted time to discussion. In other words, you will not have the time to read all of your paper in full length. An oral presentation of important points made in your paper normally works better.

There are projectors available in all conference rooms.

Only Plenary Sessions will be chaired. For the Track Sessions and Seminar Sessions, presenters in the same session are encouraged to chair each other’s papers.

Submission Guidelines

To propose a paper, please complete our online form by 31st May.  All paper proposals will be reviewed and we’ll let you know the status of your proposal ASAP. If you have any questions please email the Conference Team: Dr Knut Tveitereid (Academic Coordinator) at Knut.Tveitereid@mf.no (please note: this email address has changed) or Professor Pete Ward (Conference Founder and Host) at peter.ward@durham.ac.uk or Dr Gretchen Schoon Tanis (Conference Coordinator) at schoontanis@gmail.com.
