Where Does Sacredness Reside? Panel to Discuss Transformations of Religious Meaning in the Twenty-First Century
Usually we think of the sacred and the secular as inhabiting very different spaces. Today, however, they intermingle and merge in a variety of ways, from museums to social media to popular culture. We find the sacred in the very secular, and the secular breaking into the sacred. This breaking down of boundaries forces us to reconsider what secular and sacred mean in the contemporary world. It is increasingly difficult to discern where the secular ends and the religious begins, and vice versa.
We hope in this panel to begin an investigation of what it means when something moves from the secular realm to the religious realm or from the religious to the secular,and how these two realms intersect and influence each other.
Join us for a lively discussion with CWRU faculty & researchers who are exploring these questions, and what this may mean for the future of religion & religious culture.
