CALL FOR PAPERS
The religious makeup of European societies has been significantly changing over the past few decades. At the same time that more people identify as non-religious, new arrivals and conversion mean that the religious landscape of Europe is becoming increasingly more complex. These dynamics simultaneously enrich and challenge organizations, government agencies and scholars engaged with maintaining and promoting cultural heritage.
Such pressing questions are at the heart of the conference “Religious heritage in a diverse Europe.” The conference will bring together leading scholars and professionals in the fields of religion and heritage studies to explore this these questions. The challenges of dealing with religious heritage in a diverse Europe will be approached from the perspectives of the academy, education, museums, preservation, as well as religious and secular organizational perspectives.
The conference aims to establish encounters between scholars and professionals. Therefore, the conference sessions offer a rich mix of academic research and practices from the heritage field. Practices heavily impacted by the disappearance of religious knowledge, the importance of religious literacy for future preservation, and the pivotal role of volunteers in the maintenance of religious heritage.
