Lunch Series on Religion and Nationalism: Russia

April 7, 2020
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EDT
Location: Online Zoom Webinar

Part of the Politicization of Religion in Global Perspective project, this series of events will focus on questions surrounding the politicization of religion in India, China, Russia, Syria, and Turkey. Using qualitative and quantitative data, this project has identified patterns of politicization of religion across traditions in various national and international contexts. The main findings will be accessible in a book authored by Jocelyne Cesari and published by Cambridge University Press in spring 2021.

In this conversation, Jocelyne Cesari was joined by Kristina Stoeckl, assistant professor of sociology at the University of Innsbruck, to engage in a discussion on the role of Orthodoxy in Russia's nation-building, domestic politics, and international relations. They considered questions of Russian nationhood, the influence of religion on the foreign policy of President Putin, and the relationships between orthodoxy, secularism, and nationalism.
