We are organising the session Lived Religion. An ethnographical insight

Religion today lies at the heart of a cultural and political debate,
related to immigration, human rights, the role of women and democracy in

Since the 1980s, the concept of “lived religion” has expressed a living,
fluid, pluralistic and everyday dimension of religions: religion is part
of daily life; religiosity is expressed through a variable set of
collective and individual, institutionalised and informal, hybrid and
codified practices.

We invite contributions in an ethnographical prospective dealing with
the theme of religion in daily life – lived religion – based on solid
empirical analysis.
The areas in which the theme may be declined include:
– Native religions in today’s world;
– Religious tradition and innovation;
– Female religious experience, for example in churches, in
alternative spirituality, in religious groups/movements and in politics;
– Mobile religion including pilgrimages and religious tourism;
– Religion, economics and consumption;
– Religion, the human body and mass media.
