This event will be held at the University of Leipzig, 01-03 February 2013
Religious Non-Conformism is a powerful element of cultural tension. Whether in Iraq, Tibet or Germany, be it in the past or present – religious deviation can be punished, can be domesticated or it may also inaugurate wild cultural dynamics. The international conference of the DFG-Research Training Group “Religious Non-Conformism and Cultural Dynamics” provides a forum for scholars of different disciplinary backgrounds to present specific case-studies from various temporal, spatial and cultural areas. Theories will be challenged and theorems will be formulated.
