PhD position, The role of religion in solidarity during Western modernization - 2019BAPFLWEF141
The University of Antwerp is seeking to fill 1 full-time (100 %) vacancy in the Urban Studies Institute for a
Doctoral student for the project ‘The role of religion in solidarity during Western modernization (ca. 1650-ca. 1914)’
The position is offered in the framework of the BOF-GOA-funded research project ‘Solidarity and religion in a modernizing and post-secular context: an historical, politico-philosophical and sociological analysis’.
Project description : Our project will examine whether religious inspirations and faith-based practices could provide answers to some of the problems facing solidarity mechanisms today – particularly the need to look beyond the logic of the nation state. Specifically, we analyze (1) the impact of religion on the way the community of givers and receivers is conceived and (2) how faith-based practices are related to the modern or modernizing context.
In concrete terms, faith-based forms of solidarity are empirically examined in two PhD-projects. Subproject 1 examines the role of religion in solidarity during Western modernization for the period between ca. 1650 to ca. 1914 from an historical perspective. Subproject 2 examines contemporary religiously inspired views and practices of solidarity from a sociological and philosophical angle. In a third project, a postdoc rethinks the relationship of religion and solidarity from an interdisciplinary perspective and through an historical analysis of sociology as the science of solidarity itself.
