This is a Call for Abstracts to contribute to theRoutledge International Handbook of Religion in Global Society (target publication: 2018).  We are particularly interested in contributions from early career scholars from around the world.

The study of religion is at a turning point, along with religion itself. This book will capitalise on the emergence of a new paradigm, which considers religion in the 21st century as globally interconnected and mediated by new geopolitical and market logics.

 

This volume will showcase new approaches toreligion, which work across boundaries of religioustradition, academic discipline, and region.

Please consider the following rationale for your proposed papers.

You may send your proposed title, abstract (no more than 500 words), name, and affiliation to Jayeel Cornelio (jcornelio@ateneo.edu) by July 15, 2017.

RATIONALE

The volume understands changes in religion since the 1980s as shaped by wider socio-political-cultural changes of the period.  The shift is from one dominated by modernist national-statist formations and alliances to one in which forces, institutions and ideologies of neoliberalism, consumerism, migration, and mediatisation have become major structuring vectors.  But at the same time we also see a pushback from anti-globalisation movements of right and left and a return to the nation and/or more locally based identities. Growing environmental concern and the concept of the Anthropocene add an additional element.   

This is how the handbook characterizes the contemporary state of global society.  As a result, ‘soft power’, including religion and competing forms of secularity and ‘no religion’, come to be central in new geopolitical configurations and contestations of power.  Recognizing these new configurations, this handbook will interrogate the past, present and futures of religion in global society. 

The handbook welcomes contributions approaching religion at different levels of society (whether local, regional, national, transnational) — the macro, meso and micro.  For example, chapters can focus on internal transformations that occur within religious institutions; on the changing nature of practices, belief, adherence, piety and devotion among individuals; or the changing role of religious organizations with respect to politics, the economy and other social institutions.  Some contributions may discuss how religious movements are taking on global issues. Others will take a theoretical perspective and try to make sense of the current situation, even when this requires rethinking existing theories and concepts.

The handbook is multidisciplinary in approach and organized according to the following themes.  We invite contributions from scholars around the world, particularly those who are in their early careers.  Our aim is to make this handbook the first to go beyond Western-centric appraisals, and present a truly global portrait. Contributions dealing with dynamics around the world are therefore solicited.

Book Announcment: Islam, State and Modernity: Mohammed Abed al-Jabri and the Future of the Arab World

Islam, State and Modernity: Mohammed Abed al-Jabri and the Future of the Arab World, Palgrave, Middle East Today Series, 2017. Co-edited with Zaid Eyadat (Jordan) and Francesca Corrao (Rome):
 
This is the first work in English that examines the work of the influential Moroccan philosopher al-Jabri (d. 2010) – known by his magnum opus Critique of Arab Reason in four volumes – in the Arab-Islamic world. 
 
The book, which includes 13 chapters and a critical introduction, will be out in June 2017.
 
About this book:
 
This book offers the first comprehensive introduction to one of the most significant Arab thinkers of the late 20th century and the early 21st century: the Moroccan philosopher and social theorist Mohammed Abed al-Jabri. With his intellectual and political engagement, al-Jabri has influenced the development of a modern reading of the Islamic tradition in the broad Arab-Islamic world and has been, in recent years, subject to an increasing interest among Muslims and non-Muslim scholars, social activists and lay men. The contributors to this volume read al-Jabri with reference to prominent past Arab-Muslim scholars, such as Ibn Rushd, al-Ghazali, al-Shatibi, and Ibn Khaldun, as well as contemporary Arab philosophers, like Hassan Hanafi, Abdellah Laroui, George Tarabishi, Taha Abderrahmane; they engage with various aspects of his intellectual project, and trace his influence in non-Arab-Islamic lands, like Indonesia, as well. His analysis of Arab thought since the 1970s as a harbinger analysis of the ongoing “Arab Spring uprising” remains relevant for today’s political challenges in the region.
 
 
Reviews:
 
“Al-Jabri left no one indifferent; intellectuals throughout the Arab world were passionately either for or against him. His oeuvre offers several original insights which are just beginning to be assessed with some degree of objectivity. The present volume is the first publication in English to offer such assessments in a number of articles by specialists focusing on various aspects of one of the most original and multifaceted Arab philosopher and intellectual of our time.” 
(Abdou Filali-Ansary, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, Aga Khan University, London, UK) 
 
“This book celebrates a remarkable, but insufficiently recognized Muslim thinker. All those who claim that Islam lacks both reason and philosophy are refuted by al-Jabri’s work. Rooted in the great Islamic philosophical tradition, al-Jabri also is a herald of democratic renewal in our time.” 
(Fred R. Dallmayr, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame, USA)
 
 “These informative and thoughtful articles offer a critical assessment of a most influential and controversial Arab thinker of the late 20th century. Praised by some for his historicist, archaeological analysis of Arab intellectual legacy, and appreciated by others for his work toward an immanent Arab rationality, al-Jabiri was also criticized for his essentialist and reductionist conclusions. A timely and valuable contribution to a necessary discussion of his work.” 
(Elizabeth S. Kassab, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, Qatar)

Conference: Race, Power, and Moblities

ETMU Days, October 26–27, 2017
University of Jyväskylä, Finland
 
Race, Power and Mobilities
 
Welcome!
 
The 14th ETMU Days of 2017 will take place in Jyväskylä. This year’s theme “Race, Power, and Mobilities” hopes to break taboos around the word “race” with the intention of reclaiming it and drawing attention to processes of racialization, power, and movement as well as their intersections. On the one hand, in the Nordic countries previous studies on (im)migration and ethnicity, have mainly neglected or ignored questions of power. On the other hand, whiteness and critical race scholars have commonly analyzed power and racialization processes without foregrounding issues of mobilities. Therefore, we believe that in the study of migration and mobility there is an urgent need of scholarship that unites critical analyses of power and hierarchical structures with a focus on racialization.
 
The conference theme will be explored and illuminated by our invited keynote speakers:
 
·        Kaarina Nikunen, University of Tampere, Finland
·        Tobias Hübinette, Karlstad Universitet, Sweden
·        Nando Sigona, University of Birmingham, UK
 
In addition, as another highlight of the 2017 ETMU Days, an invited panel organized in collaboration with the anti-racist RASTER research network will discuss practices and consequences of racialization.
 
We specifically invite working groups who examine social hierarchies and categories such as ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, language, geographical location, or physical dis/ability within the context of race, power, and mobilities.
 
We further welcome examinations of how descriptions of migration and ethnic relations are produced performatively. This includes, for instance, practices of racialization in media, education, work life, individual experiences, discourses or societal structures that are analyzed through the lenses of difference and power.
 
We look forward to a multidisciplinary event with much-needed discussions, for example on the status of refugees seeking asylum and undocumented migrants, legislations and policies, artistic mobility and cultural representations, racialized hate speech, and global impacts of migration.
 
The main languages of the ETMU Days are English, Finnish, Swedish and Finnish Sign Language. All keynotes will be presented in English. We encourage participants to use multilingual and visual resources in their presentations in order to enable multilingual and multidisciplinary discussions.
 
ETMU Days also organises a pre-conference seminar for doctoral students on October 25, 2017. More information about the pre-conference on our website before summer.

ETMU-päivät 26.–27.10.2017
Jyväskylän yliopisto
Rotu, valta ja liikkuvuus
 
Tervetuloa!
 
Vuoden 2017 ETMU-päivät pidetään Jyväskylässä teemalla Rotu, valta ja liikkuvuus. Nostamme tabuksikin muuttuneen sanan ETMU-päivien teemaksi, sillä haluamme kiinnittää huomiota rodullistamisen prosesseihin sekä rodullistamisen, vallan ja liikkuvuuden kombinaatioihin. Kun pohjoismaisessa muuttoliiketutkimuksessa on tutkittu esimerkiksi maahanmuuttoa ja etnisyyttä, kysymykset vallasta ovat saattaneet jäädä vähemmälle huomiolle. Valkoisuuden ja kriittisen rotuteorian tutkijat taas ovat analysoineet tarkkanäköisesti vallan ja rodullistamisen prosesseja, mutta liikkuvuuden näkökulma on ollut taka-alalla. Valta, hierarkkiset erot ja rodullistaminen liittyvät kuitenkin kiinteästi liikkuvuuden tutkimukseen. Näihin teemoihin pureutuvat ETMU-päivien kutsutut puhujat
– Kaarina Nikunen, Tampereen yliopisto
– Tobias Hübinette, Karlstad Universitet, Ruotsi

– Nando Sigona, University of Birmingham, Iso-Britannia
 
Rodullistamisen käytänteitä ja seurauksia käsitellään myös paneelissa, jonka järjestämme yhdessä antirasistisen RASTER-tutkimusverkoston kanssa.
Kutsumme ETMU-päiville työryhmiä, joissa rotua, valtaa ja liikkuvuutta tarkastellaan yhteydessä muihin hierarkkisiin eroihin ja sosiaalisiin kategorioihin, kuten etnisyyteen, sukupuoleen, seksuaalisuuteen, uskontoon, kieleen, maantieteelliseen sijaintiin tai ruumiilliseen kyvykkyyteen. Toivotamme myös tervetulleeksi analysoimaan sitä, miten muuttoliikettä ja etnisiä suhteita koskevia kuvauksia ja tietoa tuotetaan performatiivisesti. Esimerkiksi mediassa, koulutuksessa ja työelämässä yksittäisten kokemusten, diskurssien ja yhteiskunnan rakenteiden tasoilla tapahtuvia rodullistamisen käytäntöjä voi analysoida erojen ja vallan näkökulmasta.
 
Toivomme ETMU-päivien virittävän monitieteistä keskustelua esimerkiksi turvapaikanhakijoiden ja paperittomien asemasta, lainsäädännöstä, liikkuvuuden taiteellisista ja kulttuurisista representaatioista, rodullistavasta vihapuheesta ja muuttoliikkeen globaaleista vaikutuksista.
 
ETMU-päivien viralliset kielet ovat englanti, suomi, ruotsi ja suomalainen viittomakieli. Kaikki keynote-esitelmät pidetään englanniksi. Kannustamme esiintyjiä käyttämään monikielisiä ja visuaalisia keinoja, jotta monitieteinen ja monikielinen keskustelu olisi mahdollista.
 
ETMU-päivät järjestää seminaarin jatko-opiskelijoille 25.10.2017. Lisätietoa seminaarista ETMU-päivien verkkosivuilla ennen kesää.
 
Kutsu työryhmille
 
Kutsumme työryhmien vetäjiä tarjoamaan 300–400 sanan abstraktin työryhmästä osoitteeseen etmu2017@gmail.com. Työryhmän vetäjät voivat ehdottaa aiheita, jotka ovat konferenssin teeman kannalta relevantteja tai jotka muutoin liittyvät etnisten suhteiden ja kansainvälisen muuttoliikkeen tutkimukseen. Työryhmän hyväksymisestä ilmoitetaan vetäjille 16.6.2017 mennessä, ja esitelmäkutsu työryhmiin julkaistaan 1.7.2017.

Book Announcement: Religion and Superdiversity

Announcement: Visualizing Faith, Trauma and Conflict through Art

Visualizing Faith, Trauma, and Conflict through Art: The Work of Marcello Silvestri

“In a fast-paced world saturated by flashy images and by the monotonous black and white colour of the written words of experts or pseudo experts, I have opted to pause and stay away from the frantic international travel and glamour of my early career. I like to observe and meditate and then to engage, away from the spotlight, on a local level, with many of those that have been left behind or have experienced all sorts of traumas in their life.

With my artwork I reflect on the dramatic yet extraordinary beautiful mystery of human life – and God’s deeds in it. With the naivety of a baby taking its first steps ‘sensing’ the world, and inspired by my post-WWII rural upbringing steeped in simple pious religious practices, I explore human journeys through life. I like to wonder at how the Divine is present throughout our experiences, as a ray of hope, even in the most tragic situations – and how the material earth is responding to these traumas alongside human beings. With the use of humble waste materials I also want to show how nothing is worthless and can be Beautiful in the eyes of God.

While I believe that art is there to be enjoyed intuitively and not to be explained, I have always felt the urgency to translate, through my multi-media artistic expressions, my existential dilemmas and concerns relating to thorny societal problems. Hence my paintings, sculptures and murals seek to bring out the lived traumas and denunciating societal hypocrisy that emerge through conflict, migration, refuge, detention, drug addiction, and execution. These choices have naturally led me to become involved as a volunteer in a range of educational and interfaith and rehabilitation projects addressed to youth, orphans and children from deprived backgrounds as well as with mental health problems, recovering drug addicts, and other marginalised groups, such as my current art and faith workshops with (immigrant) detainees in Civitavecchia.” – Marcello Silvestri

Call for Applications: Post-Doctoral Researcher: Project on the social implications of legal statuses and determination processes among recent asylum-seekers

Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity Call for Applications Post-Doctoral Researcher: Project on the social implications of legal statuses and determination processes among recent asylum-seekers

The Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity (Department for Socio-Cultural Diversity) wishes to appoint a highly qualified candidate for a new postdoctoral research position for three years. Applicants should have a degree in anthropology, sociology, political science, geography or another relevant social science. Experience working with asylum-seekers will be an advantage.

Researching in Göttingen (or another to-be-arranged German city), the postdoctoral researcher will qualitatively examine asylum-seekers’ differential access to resources, services, information and advice (particularly concerning their legal status, conditions, and restrictions), as well as their understandings of these. Accordingly, the researcher will also investigate asylum-seekers’ ability to conduct some form of individual independence, engage in family life, access jobs, education, training, and housing, as well as degrees of mobility within the parameters set out by respective legal statuses.

Very good spoken and written German and English is required. [The working language of the Institute is English, and publications in English-language academic journals and books are prioritized.] An additional language, relevant to contemporary asylum-seekers in Germany, will also be an advantage. Salary is based on the German public service scale TVöD (level E 13).

Applications should include a cover letter describing the applicant’s career trajectory, research experience, and interests, CV, a list of publications, publication (or Ph.D. thesis) samples and the names and contact details of two potential referees. Deadline for all applications is 17.00 pm Friday 26 May 2017. The position will commence as soon as possible, and no later than September 30th, 2017. Please send applications and any queries to the Director’s Secretary, Jutta Esser (esser@mmg.mpg.de).
