Magic, Healing, and Religion Workshop - May 26, 2021

The Department of Religious Studies is pleased to announce details of the following event: Magic, Healing, and Religion Workshop on May 26, 2021.

Mar 26, 2021

This workshop proposes an interdisciplinary and inter-religious approach to healing in religious traditions. Religious healing can be syncretic between traditions, relegated to the margins of official religion, or use non-mechanical logics to address imbalances of body, spirit, and social identity. By comparing religions, and by fostering dialogue between different fields, we hope to understand the relationship between religion, science, magic, and healing. Co-sponsored by Hannah History of Medicine Unit, Faculty of Health Sciences.
