The two-day workshop will include two keynote talks, paper presentations and “a writing clinic” for the purposes of developing a special issue on the theme of the POWERS network. A keynote speech will be given by Mattias Gardell, Nathan Söderblom Professor in Comparative Religion, and researcher at the Centre for the Multidisciplinary Studies of Racism (CEMFOR). He has examined the intersections of religion, politics, racism and violence.
