The Problem with "Fundamentalism" (and Other Liberal Myths about Religion)

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

The Wenner-Gren Foundation

Presented By

Presented by the Anthropology Section


This panel seeks to generate a conversation on how scholarly and popular discourses about nonliberal religious movements shape and constrain scholarly projects. To write about religious mobilizations in the current moment is to enter a discursive terrain already shaping the types of questions possible to ask and imagine. How are scholars responding to this discursive terrain in their work? Please come and join the discussion.

A reception will precede the meeting at 6:00 pm.
