Conference: Tradition, Secularization, Fundamentalism

The Orthodox Christian Studies Center of Fordham University, NY Thursday, June 23-Saturday, June 25 Location: Fordham University School of Law, 150 W. 62nd St. (between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues), New York City

While the very meaning of the “secular” remains contested, Christians globally are self-identifying in different ways in relation to an imagined secularization, all the while discerning how to live as a tradition. This intersection between tradition, secularization, and fundamentalism is especially evident in both post-Communist Catholic/Orthodox countries and the American context, where fundamentalist-like responses have emerged against the perceived threat of the secular.
