Religion is one of the most contested aspects of twenty-first century life. How can we understand and theorise the power of religion in the constitution of subjects and in its social, cultural and political manifestations? This conference will look at the interface between Theory, Faith and Culture. It will explore a range of theoretical approaches to the subject and attempt to further our understanding of some of the most important and pressing issues of the day.
