On April 26 and 27, 2023, the colloquium 'Politics of Dis-enclosure' was a great scene for intense exchange on the possibilities to decolonize and 'dis-enclose' dominant and often violent notions of religion, community, and globalization. The concept of dis-enclosure has been coined by the French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy and served as an inspiration for the lectures and discussions.

We are now working on the publication of the lectures in a special issue of the Journal for Religion & Transformation (JRaT), 'The Politics of Dis-enclosure: Explorations into Religion, Community and Decolonial Violence, Inspired by the Works of Jean-Luc Nancy'. Other scholars will be invited to contribute as well. Guest-editors will be Louise du Toit, Schalk Gerber and Laurens ten Kate.
