Transforming Bodies and Religions

Powers and Agencies in Europe

Boek Transforming bodies and religions

In October Routledge published Transforming Bodies and Religions. Powers and Agencies in Europe. This book was edited by Dr Mariecke van den BergLieke Schrijvers MA, Jelle Wiering and Prof Anne-Marie Korte, all part of the Religious Studies research group. 

This book sheds an interdisciplinary light on ‘transforming bodies’: bodies that have been subjected to, contributed to, or have resisted social transformations within religious or secular contexts in contemporary Europe. It explores the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and religion that underpin embodied transformations. Using post-secularist, postcolonial and gender/queer perspectives, it aims to gain a better understanding of the orchestrations and effects of larger social transitions related to religion.
