From August 31st until September 7th 2008, the University Centre Saint-Ignatius Antwerp (UCSIA) organises the UCSIA summer school "Religion, Culture and Society".
It is obvious that religion, culture and society are strongly interwoven and are crucial for understanding the contemporary world. It is the aim of the interdisciplinary UCSIA summer school to learn and reflect on this interconnection.
Our guest lecturers are Robert Hefner (Boston University) on "Religion, Power, Pluralism and Modernity", John Hutchinson (London School of Economics) on "Nationalism and Religion", Tariq Modood (University of Bristol) on "Political Multiculturalism" and Christian Welzel (Jacobs University Bremen) on "Modernization, Cultural Change and Democracy".
Further details (the programme of the summer school, a call for papers and an application form) can be found on our website: http://www.ucsia.org/summerschool.
The completed application form and other required application documents must be submitted to the UCSIA Selection Committee not later than Sunday, April 20th 2008.
