Secularization and desecularization theories have introduced us to an area of contested knowledge regarding the meaning of believing or not believing in the everyday conceptualization of societies, communities, groups and individuals. We are living in a secular context, which, nevertheless is characterised by religious diversity. Secularization is a triply contested notion; what it is, whether it happened and whether it is valuable. Regardless, there is general agreement that interdisciplinary dialogue needs to be improved.
Politics, policy and professional practice have been framed by this secular context. In politics, parties struggle to project a sense of common agency; in policy, the state acts as a secular commissioner for faith-based social action; and professional practice is characterized by religious illiteracy in service delivery.
This symposium will aim to explore both existing and potential actions surrounding religion, secularity and change in the UK.

Transform the place where you learn and practise
The Department of Social, Therapeutic and Community Studies at Goldsmiths is connected. And it has human relationships at its heart.
Whether you want to understand and challenge the way that vulnerable individuals and groups are disadvantaged and marginalised; to become a social worker, community and youth worker, art or dance movement therapist or counsellor; or to change people’s lives through dance, drama and music, our degrees are informed by our commitment to social justice and applied practices.
We want you to go out into the field with confidence but also with an understanding of the context in which you’ll work. So we’ll encourage you to be reflective in your learning and to consider the central relationship between yourself and others. This means you’ll explore practice in the context of your own life and experiences, as well as taking take part in conversations that inform group learning.
