NISIS/NOSTER Meeting: ‘Moving in/out of Religion’
Just like last year, we will organize our midyear meeting together with NISIS (the Netherlands Interuniversity School for Islamic Studies). This year we have chosen for a thematic approach and will focus on a theme that is of interest to all our subdisciplines: ‘Moving in/out of Religion’. During this day we will explore (research into) changing religious identities and discuss various movements into religion, out of religion and from one religion to another. What does it mean to become religious (i.e. conversion), leave a religious tradition (i.e. deconversion, apostasy) or change between religious identities? Prof. dr. Karin van Nieuwkerk (RU) will give a keynote lecture, prof. dr. Anne-Marie Korte (UU) will provide a response and we will read various texts discussing the theme.
The NISIS/NOSTER meeting will take place in Utrecht. More details on the programme will be announced soon.
