GOBA Launches New Collaborative Blog
In January, GOBA launched Religion: Going Public, a collaborative blog on religion in the public sphere
The Religion: Going Public blog discusses various aspects of contemporary religion in the public sphere. aims to disseminate on-going research findings to wider audiences and engage with and inform public debates on religion. Religion: Going Public develops out of a collaboration between researchers in three research projects funded by Norwegian Research Council’s SAMKUL program.
The blog brings together reader-friendly scholarly perspectives on contemporary religion in society. More specifically, the blog is bounded by SAMKUL’s overarching focus on cultural conditions underlying social change. Our emphasis is on the multiple ways that contemporary religion plays into societies and social change. Geographically, our primary focus is on Norway, Scandinavia and Europe. Our goal is to provide socially relevant and stimulating research-based blog posts that speak to public debates about religion.
Religion: Going Public is a collaboration between GOBA and two other SAMKUL-funded projects, Engaging with Conflicts in Mediatized Religious Environments (CoMRel) and Muslim Politics and Governance of Islam.
