RETHINKING COMMUNITY

RELIGIOUS CONTINUITIES AND MUTATIONS IN LATE MODERNITY

Turku-Abo, Finland, 27-30 June, 2013

Since the beginning of sociological study of religion the close interactions between religion and community life have been emphasised. For a long time, social scientists have discussed if religious communities are either cohesive, divisive or both - and have thereby taken the notion of "religious community" for granted. In recent research, however, the concept of religious community itself has come into question. Whereas some "classical" forms of parishes and congregations continue to operate, recent studies in sociology of religion have shown important new phenomena arising. On the one hand, seemingly constant forms of congregations change in central ways, e.g. growing into megachurches, resorting to marketing and branding, and operating in new transnational ways. On the other hand, globalisation, mediatization and individualization lead to completely new phenomena, for example liquid, festive, virtual and mediatized religious communities. This international conference will give the opportunity to analyze these continuities and mutations both theoretically and empirically.
