Social Imaginaries between Secularity and Religion in a Globalizing World
SIMAGINE is a platform for research exchange exploring the role of social imaginaries in a pluralistic, globalizing world. We aim to address current realities through academic research that focuses on the issue of imaginary borders between religion and secular society, and that pays special attention to decolonial perspectives. Through critical and collaborative analyses, our interdisciplinary research intervenes into the realms of media, art, and education,
We are an interdisciplinary platform where philosophers, social scientists, political theorists, and religious scholars from a variety of educational institutions and research centres participate in projects deconstructing the social imaginaries that determine the 21st century.
We have organized six international conferences, participated in two collaborative publications, and contributed to thematic panels on general conferences around the world.
SIMAGINE members Laurens ten Kate and Bram van Boxtel will guest edit a special issue of the open access journal Religions. We invite members and collaborators to consider contributing to this issue, entitled "Cultural and Religious Pluralism in the Age of Imaginaries," which aims to further develop theories of pluralism in relation with imagination, in the cross-over area between secularity and religion.
