CONF: Territories of Faith. Leuven, 3-4 July 2017

Conference: Territories of Faith. Leuven, 3-4 July 2017.

The research group Architectural Cultures of the Recent Past (ARP) of KU Leuven and KADOC, the Documentation and Research Centre on Religion, Culture and Society of KU Leuven, are organizing an international workshop on religion, urban planning and demographic change in post-war Europe. The workshop is part of the PhD project entitled Catholic Territories in a Suburban Landscape: Religion and Urbanization in Belgium, 1945-1975. The workshops aims to offer new insights in how organized religion manages and marks its presence within a given territory.
On 3 and 4 July 2017, nine papers will be presented and discussed as a prelude to an edited volume. The discussion of each paper will be initiated by one invited respondent and two of the participating authors, and then opened to the entire group. The workshop also includes a ½ day tour to some remarkable modern church buildings in the Leuven – Brussels area.
Researchers and practitioners with an interest in the history of religious architecture are welcome to participate in the workshop. Yet due to limited room capacity, registration is required before 2 June 2017 by sending an e-mail to eva.weyns@kuleuven.be. For listeners, there is a fee to cover the costs of food and refreshments (€ 20 for lunch / € 90 for lunch and dinner – to be paid cash at the beginning of the workshop).
More information and thee full programme of the workshop can be accessed here.
