Conference: Quasi-Religiosity in Contemporary Society (KANR)
Conference Theme: Quasi-Religiosity in Contemporary Society
This conference continues our exploration of the broad area of quasi-religions in contemporary society. Quasi-religions share some traits of religions but are not clearly classified as religious. This conference hopes to discuss distinctions between quasi-religious and religious phenomena. We wish to investigate further how quasi-religions are depicted in different societies and in the media. The organizers encourage submissions on any other topic areas related to the question of quasi-religiosity. For instance, how do different groups navigate the question of legal registration in their base country? And how do members self-define? The organizers welcome explorations using any methodological approaches, including ethnographic, textual, theoretical and ritual studies.
