Session 9

Religion and the Secular contesting Western culture. Performing of non-religion ritual practices

The study of non-religion practices emerges as a novel way to understand the shifting religious landscape in Western countries – religious/world view identity, relationships, and culture.

Therefore, it is essential to examine the ways non-religion ritual practices translate into the textures of everyday life – into work life, state institutions, political engagement, life trajectories, social media participation, etc. These ritual practices challenge several assumptions in the field of sociology of religion: How do they construct an in-group and an out-group, or bridge across dividing religious and non-religious groups? Further, how do these new and old rituals re-frame the present and envision the future within and without the framework of leadership, membership and organization?

The critical study of non-religion rituals also means that we seriously consider the concepts of power, ethnicity, and gender. This raises important questions: who acts for whom, whose voices are privileged and whose are silenced? The session welcomes empirical and theoretical studies on non-religion practices and rituals.
