The topic of the COREnet PhD Summer School 2024 is “Intersecting Gender, Religion and Migration in Contemporary Society”.
The globalized world, climate change and geopolitical realities create the social and political conditions for the increase of migration in contemporary societies which is influenced by sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation as well as religion and beliefs. Migration of vulnerable social groups requests state’s and other social institutions responses, among them is religion, too. On the one hand, religion provides networks and social support for migrating individuals and their groups. On the other hand, religion is one of the factors defining and creating boundaries concerning who is accepted or denied participation in the imagined community. Growing social diversity in the context of migration requires new theoretical and practical as well as interdisciplinary research approaches, explanations and guidance for political and social solutions for arising social problems.
How and where do gender, religion and migration intersect and what theoretical and practical challenges this intersection brings will be discussed during this summer school from various disciplinary perspectives and will strive for discussion of the need for an interdisciplinary approach to the subject, its benefits and pitfalls.
