RELATED RESOURCES: GLOBALIZATION
Globalization, Religions, and the Secular
How does globalization intersect with the resurgence of public religion? To what extent do we live in a post-secular world? The Globalization, Religions, and the Secular program brings together leading scholars across disciplines to explore different dimensions of these questions across states, regions, and religious communities.
Religious and Political Identities: The Mediterranean since 1492
The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University and the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute are engaged in a joint research project that rethinks the relationship between religion, nation, and state throughout the Mediterranean basin from early modernity to the present. A series of workshops, to culminate in a conference and major book project, is exploring the interaction of Eastern and Latin Christianity, Islam, and Judaism -- among individual Christian, Muslim, and Jewish adherents, with one another as religious institutions, and with states and societies across the region.
The Jesuits and Globalization
This three-year project will examine the historical contributions of the Society of Jesus and in our increasingly global era. It will bring together leading scholars and practitioners to explore Jesuit innovations and legacies in the areas of mission, education, and justice. A symposium will address each thematic area and the project will culminate in a capstone conference—to be held in 2014, the bicentennial of the reestablishment of the Jesuit order—and in an edited book and a monograph.
