Developing new approaches to studying the emerging field of religious diversity.
Religious diversity has become a visible part of contemporary society, and pluralization has superseded secularization as an overall framework for studies of contemporary religion. While the study of religious diversity has been conducted in specific contexts, there is still a need of comparative approaches as well as improvement of methods and theories related to the field. This network will bring together scholars with expertise within specific areas to developing new approaches studying the emerging field of religious diversity. The aim of the network is to map, critically analyze, and constructively improve the current disparate scholarly field.
