CfA: UCSIA Summer School in Antwerp (27th of August-2nd of September 2017)

13 March 2017

It is the aim of the interdisciplinary UCSIA summer school to investigate the dynamic interaction between macro-level developments and bottom-up approaches in the fields of religion and culture and the way in which this interplay may induce innovative synergies and/or provoke new and old forms of confrontation. This year the program will focus on the topic ‘Between Market, State and Religion: Economic Realities, Social Justice & Faith Traditions’.

The central aim of the UCSIA summer school is to reflect upon the evolutions of economic markets interacting with specific political and socio-religious contexts through time and space. Focus is put upon the ways in which socio-economic evolutions such as globalization, the historical rise of capitalist economies and the idea of the self-regulating market interact with and affect socio-religious and cultural normative frameworks on both the level of governmental policy, economic stakeholders and the individual household. The present call invites paper proposals in which the broad topic of economic realities interacting with social contexts and faith traditions will be discussed from a diverse lines of approach, clustered around following subthemes:

  • Globalization, economic imperialism and social justice
  • Religious communities and economic values and production
  • Capitalism under construction: appropriation of capitalist producing and consuming

Guest lecturers are Prof. Dr. Jennifer Olmsted (Drew University, U.S.A; U.S. Department of Agriculture), Prof. Dr. Mayfair Yang (Department of Religious Studies and Department of East Asian Languages & Cultural Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara), Dr. David Henig (School of Anthropology & Conservation, University of Kent, UK) and Prof. Dr. Paul Oslington (Alphacrusis College, Sydney, Australia)
