The Religion Department at Middlebury College will present the Scott Symposium on Secularism on the afternoon of Friday, January 25th, at the Robert A. Jones ’59 House Conference Room, with panels at 1:00, 2:30, and 4 p.m. Community members are welcome.
The symposium consists of Middlebury faculty members from a variety of departments discussing secularism in their teaching and research.
Our questions: “Do we live in a secular age? What does it mean to make such a claim, and to what extent is it true? How do secular arrangements differ across cultures and societies? What are the histories of secularism? What is the relationship between secularism and religion? How similar is the secular experience, in terms of its affective and/or functional role in human life, to religious experience?”
