Session 16

Religion and cultural heritage

This session invites contributions, which discuss religion and cultural heritage and all disciplinary perspectives are welcome! The session will explore the role of religion in the context of cultural heritage today with an emphasis on perspectives on lived religion and everyday religion.

Today there is a strong focus on religion and cultural heritage within a variety of disciplines; however, there is still a need for a development of the perspectives of sociology of religion within cultural heritage discussions. Religion in the context of cultural heritage is part of the discussion of religion in relation to the challenges and changes in contemporary society. The panel organizers focus specifically on religion and museums in their work, but seek to connect this with other perspectives on cultural heritage.

The museums are part of the cultural and societal landscape and play a part in shaping the understanding of society today through exhibitions about the past. Museums are also increasingly engaged in involving stakeholders, including representatives from religious organizations in their work.

Here the differences between minority and majority religious organizations also come into play in relation to the cultural heritage management of the majority cultural narratives in relation to minority narratives. The session is linked to the Danish research project “Religion – Living Cultural Heritage” (2019-2021) and will also focus on establishing contacts between researchers within the field of religion and museums internationally.
