Can religion provide valuable resources and insights to be used in the creation of future sustainable societies? By investigating the concept of existential sustainability from a religious studies’ perspective, this research initiation project seeks to build a multi-disciplinary research environment by arranging activities for the exploration of three inter-related focus areas – technology, health, and death. The aim of this research environment is to provide a base for future project/program research applications within this field of enquiry.
The following academic activities will be carried out in this project:
- A thematic seminar series focusing on the concept of existential sustainability and on the focus areas of the project.
- An international conference on the existential dimensions of technology, health, and death at Lund University November 23-25 2022. The contributions to this conference will be published in a thematic issue of an open access journal or in an anthology. CFP will be published on the website in early February.
- A formation of an international advisory group representing various scholarly fields whose members will be involved in formulating project/program areas, but will also contribute with seminar or keynote lectures.
