About

In the wake of increased individualization of the western world since
the 1960s, new forms of religion have emerged, sometimes referred to as
new spiritualities, New Age or a new form of folk belief.

The course
highlights these new spiritualities from social science perspectives,
and addresses the social, cultural and structural changes that have
contributed to its emergence. In addition, the course critically deals
with issues of its local and global dimensions, commercial aspects and
gender perspectives.
