Summer School

Each year UCSIA organizes a Summer School on religion, culture and society. With this summer school UCSIA continues the academic reflection it started in 2003 with its summer seminars on inter-religious and intercultural dialogue and on faith-based radicalism. The main objectives are to learn and reflect on this interconnection and to offer young scholars and PhD students the opportunity to attend lectures of established researchers, present their own work and discuss their ideas in a relaxed and open atmosphere and within a multidisciplinary framework.

Each year the summer school focuses on one specific topic. Previous summer school topics were:

2007: Gender 
2008: Multiculturalism
2009: Religion and politics
2010: Religion and culture in a globalizing world (two-day conference)
2011: Religion and international relations
2012: Secularism(s) and religion in society
2013: Religion, Reform and the Challenge of Plurality
2014: Religion and Culture in a Globalized World: Questioning our Research Frames (alumni conference)
