UCSIA Summer School "Religion, Culture and Society: Entanglement and Confrontation" - Universitair Centrum Sint-Ignatius Antwerpen
Antwerp, Belgium
In 2017 program of the USCIA summer school is dedicated to the topic "Between Market, State and Religion: Economic Realities, Social Justice and Faith Traditions". The central aim of the UCSIA summer school 2017 is thus is to reflect upon the evolutions of economic markets interacting with specific political and socio-religious contexts through time and space. We will focus upon the ways in which socio-economic evolutions such as globalization, the historical rise of capitalist economies and the idea of the self-regulating market interact with and affect socio-religious and cultural normative frameworks on both the level of governmental policy, economic stakeholders and the individual household. The present call invites paper proposals in which the broad topic of economic realities interacting with social contexts and faith traditions will be discussed from a diverse lines of approach, clustered around following subthemes: - Globalization, economic imperialism and social justice, - Religious communities and economic values and production, - Capitalism under construction: appropriation of capitalist producing and consuming.
