**Call for Papers**
**In the context of Unesco’s World Day for Cultural Diversity for 
Dialogue **
**and Development 2017, the Italian Department at Utrecht University **
**organises a two-day symposium to explore how religious hierarchies, **
**institutions and practices shaped the identity and the cultural 
production **
**(language, literature, performance, social media) of past and present 
Italian **
**Religion may be seen as an impediment to or enhancer of social mobility **
**inside and outside of Italy. It can trigger “narrations” that either 
revolve **
**around cultural practices linked with traditional notions of**
**Italianness (e.g. piccola patria), or shift towards new doctrines and **
**spiritualties that redefine the idea of nation and culture. 
Furthermore, **
**religious institutions and their missionary, educational and cultural**
**activities can forge the identity – also linguistic – of integrated **
**and/or segregated migrant communities.**
**In the context of Italian mobilities, this conference aims to bring **
**together scholars from various disciplines to showcase how religious 
cults **
**and practices cross(ed) national and cultural borders and**
**how these practices embody a language through which emigrants represent **
**their transnational experience. Moments of transition in which borders 
between **
**nations and cultures are redefined with the decisive contribution of 
religion **
**are of particular interest for this conference, with a focus on 
processes **
**of colonisation/decolonisation, nationalisation, secularisation, 
tensions **
**caused by ethnic and religious conflicts on a local and a global scale. **
**The final aim of the symposium is to establish a platform with which 
to explore **
**the shifting place and role of religion in a new age of great 
**Interested scholars may wish to address, among others, one or more of 
the **
**following topics:**
**• (re)readings, translations and re-interpretations of religion in 
literary texts;**
**• narratives and languages of mobility, migration and religion;**
**• rethinking localism, regionalism and nationalism within religious 
**• globalisation and religious hegemony;**
**• Religion and Folk culture;**
**• transnational approaches to religion studies;**
**• transmediality and spirituality.**
**Please send a 250 words abstract to m.brera a uu.nl or m.m.Jansen a uu.nl
