J. Stålsett (ed.) RELIGION IN A GLOBALISED AGE.
Transfers & Transformations, Integration &
As world history has entered the era
of globalisation it has become ever clearer that religion is not something
that primarily belongs to the past. Contrary to what was held by many
social scientists and students of religion some decades ago, global
processes of modernization have not led to the fading of religion from the
public arena. Instead, as the world has become more interlinked we have
seen a resurgence of religion in many regions and many spheres of society.
Hence to get a deeper understanding of the complex processes of global
transformation in our time, it is vital to study the role of religion.
???But what is this role? In what ways are religions changed by
globalisation? And how do religions contribute to contemporary global
transformation processes? In what ways and under which circumstances does
religion promote the ongoing processes of globalisation? And when and how
does religion provide resources for resisting these processes?
