Workshop on the representation of religion(s) and the “World Religions Paradigm”

Date: December 13-14, 2016

Venue: UiT – The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø, Norway

Organized by: the EASR Working Group on Religion in Public Education

In contrast to other existing networks and organizations dealing with religious education (RE) in Europe at various levels and in various ways, the EASR Working Group on Religion in Public Education intends to establish a firm basis for and further develop study-of-religions research on RE as well as a basis for specific “RS-based RE didactics and school subjects”. That means a form of RE based on the academic study of religions, independent from any kind of promotion of religion, interreligious dialogue, or support of religious institutions or communities.

The EASR working group invites to a workshop on the representation on religion(s) and the “World Religions Paradigm”. We invite researchers to present papers on the complexities involved in dealing with representation of religion(s) in teaching contexts. Papers are invited to discuss how recent criticisms of “The World Religions Paradigm” is relevant for teaching about religion(s) in RE. In addition to theoretical reflections, presentations that focus on ‘dead religions’, new religious movements, popular culture or indigenous religions in RE are particularly welcome.

The workshop will take place in Tromsø (Norway) and be organized in cooperation with the Research group for Religion Education in Public Education at the UiT – The Arctic University of Norway. The first day (13. December) of the workshop will take place at Tromsø Villmarkssenter (Tromsø Wild Life center, http://www.villmarkssenter.no), a 25 minute drive outside Tromsø city center.
