The hegemonic world religions paradigm (WRP) in research and education in religious studies has long been criticized for being modeled on predominantly Christian, Protestant and Western ideas about religion, and thus running the risk reductionism and failure to recognize expressions of religion that do not fit this framework. Despite this, it is difficult to get rid of the prevailing WRP, especially in education. In addition, non-confessional, non-religious, secular education in religion, in countries such as Sweden, may be biased by norms and values that assume that religion as such is outdated and irrational. The seemingly neutral, non-religious, or agnostic position that is present in higher level education in religious studies can then be seen as aligned with an institutional, not necessarily personal, religiophobia or fear of religion. Consequently higher level education about religion runs the risk of presenting religion in terms of flawed stereotypes. In this paper, I address these two interrelated and subject-specific problems by examining them in the light of the educational philosophy of Gert J. J. Biesta, and in particular in relation to his discussion about the three domains of education: qualification, socialization, and subjectification. I will also give examples of how educators can follow Biesta’s call for subjectification in practice, in the classroom.
