Pembicara: Prof. Dr. FRANS WIJSEN

Abstrak:

For the past few decades there has been dissatisfaction among religious scholars with objectivist definitions of religion and positivist methods of studying religion. However, alternative theories and methods of religious studies are not yet standardised. The application of Critical Discourse Analysis for the scholarly study of religion and inter-religious relations is a way among others to look for that alternative method. This presentation will explore an ongoing comparative research in Tanzania, Indonesia and the Netherlands. The main inquiry of this research is how does religious language represents and constitutes religious identities and by doing so to generate convergence or divergence among religious communities.
