UCSIA Summer Seminar 2005 - Faith-based Radicalism: Christianity, Islam and Judaism between Construc (UCSIA Summer Seminar)
|Event Date/Time: Sep 14, 2005||End Date/Time: Sep 25, 2005|
|Paper Submission Date: May 15, 2005|
The complexity of the diverse influences at work necessitates a broad, interdisciplinary approach. That is why the seminar will be divided into three different parts, allowing international scholars from different fields to share their insights on the theme.
First scholars in the field of comparative science of religion, theology and history will present their insight in the evidence of faith-based radicalism within the religious sources and establish a theological and conceptual frame. Then psychologists will investigate the psychological mechanisms that influence radical behaviour. Finally social scientists will examine the social, political and economical mechanisms at work.
The seminar is of interest to graduate students and scholars in theology, the humanities (religious studies, philosophy, linguistics, history and literature) and the social sciences (anthropology, sociology, political sciences, law and economics).
Tuition fee, accommodation and meals are furnished by the organizer. In principle, the participant only has to bear his or her travel expenses and his or her personal expenses.
The participants should stay for the whole duration of the seminar.
