Engaging with Conflicts in Mediatized Religious Environments

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

This project studies the intertwined role of media and religion in conflicts and tensions in contemporary Norway and the other Scandinavian societies.
The project is theoretically informed by research on mediatization of religion.
The social tensions that are addressed revolve around uses of public spaces.
The studies relate to three arenas where people engage in conflicts over religious symbols, items and claims that are made visible through the media.
The book from the project, 'Contesting Religion. The Media Dynamics of Cultural Conflict in Scandinavia' is expected April/May 2018.
