Nonreligion and Secularity Research Network (NSRN)

The NSRN is an international and interdisciplinary network of researchers founded in 2008. It aims to centralise existing research on the topic of nonreligion and secularity and to facilitate discussion in this area.


Multiple Secularities

Based at the University of Leipzig, this project aims to develop a conceptual framework that allows for a better understanding of contemporary and historical contestations over relationships between religion and secularity.


Programme for the Study of Religion and Non-Religion

The Programme for the Study of Religion and Non-Religion, based in the Department of Anthropology, aims to bring together staff and research students from across LSE, and within the wider academic and policy communities, working on issues to do with religion, secularism, and “non-religious” practices, beliefs, and traditions.


Dynamics of Religion in Southeast Asia (DORISEA)

The competence network "dynamics of religion in Southeast Asia" (DORISEA) is a research network funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and coordinated by the Departement of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Göttingen. Scientists from the Universities of Göttingen, Hamburg, Münster, Heidelberg and Berlin (Humboldt University) are involved in several projects that investigate the relationship between religion and modernity in Southeast Asia.

Normative Orders

Researchers from a wide variety of disciplines, such as philosophy, history, political science and legal studies, as well as ethnology, economics, theology and sociology, cooperate within this research alliance. Their goal is to be able to reach conclusions informed by all of these perspectives concerning the extent to which we live in an era of the formation of new normative orders.
