What Comes After the Critique of Secularism?

Conference/Symposium | April 13 | 8 a.m.-5:15 p.m. | 3335 Dwinelle Hall

 Berkeley Center for the Study of Religion

This workshop gathers scholars who are interested in the myriad recent critiques of secularism spanning a variety of academic fields: history, political science, anthropology, comparative literature, etc. Our aim is to discuss the various motives for these critiques, their implications, and what alternatives, if any, they put forward. What implications, for instance, does the critique of secularism have for the writing of history or the study of political theory, African American Studies or comparative literature? What comes after the critique of secularism? The ultimate goal is not to defend or critique so-called secular studies. Rather, it is to discuss where this field might be heading.
