NCRE 2024 “The Other”
Welcome to the 17th Nordic Conference of Religious Education [NCRE], where we will explore ‘the other’ in RE. The theme includes, but is not limited to, discussing the multicultural state, minority voices, otherification and exotification, using the perspective of the majority to describe a minority, how culturation into an ‘us’ by implication necessarily creates a ‘them’, as well as good examples (practical or theoretical) on how to avoid all or some of the pitfalls mentioned above.
Date: June 17 to 19, 2024. (Preconference meetup on Sunday, June 16th.)
Location: Karlstad university, Sweden.
- David Thurfjell, professor in the study of religions, Södertörn university
- Martha Shaw, ass. professor in education at London South Bank university
- Torjer Andreas Olsen, professor in indigenous studies, Tromsø university
