Postsecularism Lecture Series 2008–2009
A collaboration with the Centre for the Humanities, Utrecht University.

The academic year-long lecture series on postsecularism is a collaboration with the Centre for the Humanities, Utrecht University (, marking part of the research trajectory of Concerning the Post-Secular, a long-term, multifaceted project at BAK.

The lecture series aims at investigating the “post-secular” as a central aspect of our current historical condition and the mutual engagements of secularism and religious discourses especially in contemporary Europe. It maps the intersections of the “post-secular” with social and political theory as well as cultural and artistic practices and movements with special emphasis on issues of political theory, Islam in Europe, ethics, human rights, feminist practices, contemporary art, and the European tradition of liberal humanism.
