CEU Doctoral Conference 2017: Enchantments, Disenchantments, Re-enchantments

Friday, June 30, 2017, 9:00 am – Saturday, July 1, 2017, 5:00 pm

The Center for Religious Studies at the Central European University 
cordially invites you to its
First Doctoral Conference in Religious Studies

Enchantments, Disenchantments, Re-enchantments: Religion, State, and Society through History 
(June 29th-July 1st 2017)




This conference, featuring the work of prospective doctoral students and young researchers from around the world, engages in a discussion on the role of religion and secularization in the modern world from a variety of academic disciplines, time periods, and geographical locations.

Between secularism on one hand, and the disenchantment with secularism and a re-created model of sacral governance on the other, there lies a rich pool of experiences that is highly relevant for various fields of research today.

The aim of this conference is a more fruitful discussion on the relationship between religion, the state, and society, often defined in terms of a sort of “enchantment”, in a historical context.
