Religion and the City

Religion and the City

Seminar / 30h / 5 ECTS / summer semester coordinator: dr Natalia Zawiejska

Contemporary religion is prevailingly an urban phenomenon. Moreover we might observe that religion and urbanity are shaping each other. In such approach urbanity becomes the medium for religious articulations. Understanding the agency and presence of religion in the urban environment becomes crucial for recognizing ontological status of religion in the contemporary world. What does it mean when religion in (in)visible in the city, what are the links between activism and religion, religion and protest, religion and urban management, where is the line between religious and secular in the city, how the spiritual is embedded in the city? How the spiritual is managing local economy and politics, how ‘religion’ claims the right to the city? The course gives an overview of the main topics important in the contemporary debate on religion and urbanity. It dwells on variety of examples from different places in Europe, Africa and Asia. However the research project that we will develop during the course will focus on locality, dwelling on East European and Polish specifics. The course format oscillates between seminar and research workshop. This course is an research based course linked to the ongoing research project: https://rum.project.uj.edu.pl/en_GB/
