The Institute for Religion, Culture, and Public Life at Columbia University invites you to:
 

Emergent Forms of Religious Life in Contemporary Mexico

 

 

Thursday, April 2, 2015
Buell Hall, East Gallery
(515 West 116th Street, New York, NY 10027

Friday, April 3, 2015
Knox Hall, Room 509
(606 West. 122nd Street, New York, NY 10027)

8:30 AM to 5:00 PM Each Day

 

"Emergent Forms of Religious Life in Contemporary Mexico” aims to develop a preliminary exploration of the broad theme of emergent religious forms in Mexican public life.  We hope to address new narratives and social practices developed to cope with everyday life in a society that has undergone such rapid and deep transformation, the nature of engagement of contemporary religious organizations and trends in Mexican public life, and the proliferation of cult-like organizations that do not take on expressly religious forms, but may have kinship with them, such as Michoacán’s Knights Templar, Dianetics, or even the culture of pyramid scheme-like organizations such as Herbalife."

This conference is free and open to all. Click here to register
