The Syracuse University Department of Religion will be hosting a with ten faculty of the Center for Religious Studies at Ruhr University, Bochum on March 4-5. The goal of the colloquium is to explore the possibility of collaborative research projects. 

Our initial meeting is organized around two broad themes: (1) changes in the use and reuse of public and privatespaces as religious sites, including conflicts over such places, and (2) reactivations of old normative texts to advance or hinder social change.  

This event is made possible by grants from Syracuse University (CUSE grant), the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
