Secularization, Religion, and Modernism

Secularization, Religion, and Modernism

This panel explores modernity’s complex and often fraught relationship with secularization, religion, and spiritual experience. Modernity is often described as a period of increasing secularism. This panel questions whether this description suits the period as a whole.

We invite papers that investigate the spiritual climate of modernity. How did modernists position themselves in relation to religion, spirituality, or sacred spaces? In what ways did changing political, economic, or other social forces affect or mitigate the ways in which modernists experience the religious and spiritual? What is the relationship of the modernists to grace? How were modernists seeking forms of community and belonging, both inside and outside the church?

Please send a 250 word abstract, along with a brief scholarly biography, to Victoria Chandler (vec@email.sc.edu) by April 14.
