The Inaugural Lecture of Professor David Herbert – The Dynamics of Religious Publicisation: Community Cohesion and the Public Sphere in Post-Multicultural Europe

This lecture will trace Professor David Herbert's interest in religion in the public sphere of contemporary societies from his PhD thesis on the consequences for community relations of the controversy over Salman Rushdie's novel The Satanic Verses in the UK in the early 1990s, through his work on religion and politics in Eastern Europe and the Middle East (Religion and Civil Society, 2003) to his more recent reflections and research on the implications of changing media and communications conditions for both the cultural transmission of religious traditions and the politics of multiculturalism (Social Media and Religion, co-ed, 2013, Creating Community Cohesion, 2013 and Cultural Conflict 2.0 project, 2014 - 18). Reflecting on these works and contemporary conditions it will ask, how can we best build solidarity between people from diverse religions and cultures in post-multicultural Europe?

Booking is essential to attend this event.
