Time and Location
Hosted by the Institute for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies, this three-day conference will take place at the University of Leeds between Friday 24 and Sunday 26 June 2011.
At a moment when the ‘resurgence of religion’ is calling into question the secular orientation of global futures, we ask: isn’t it time for cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary debate about the role that the sacred plays in our ideas and our histories of personal and collective agency, power and change?
THE EVENT: This conference will bring together scholars, professionals and arts practitioners to investigate the ways in which sacred traditions – in diverse cultural and historical contexts – have shaped discourses and practices of empowerment, emancipation, change, resistance and survival.
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN: Please see our registration page for more details.
