On 7-8 April  2022 (Thursday  and Friday) MOME university organises a multidisciplinary conference on ‘re-enchanting’ to discuss the changes of the religious culture of Central and Eastern Europe. The grand event New Approaches to Re-enchanting Central and Eastern Europe will be joined by 35 presenters from 17 countries with keynote speeches delivered by Daniel Wojcik (University of Oregon) and Alessandro Testa (Charles University, Prague). 

Reflecting the multidisciplinarity of the event, the presentations will look at a number of phenomena in contemporary religious culture, such as the artistic dimensions of UFO culture, COVID-19 conspiracy theories mushrooming in social media, the mythologies of contemporary paganism, pagan metal and Christian rock music, the emergence of sacred edifices in urban spaces, popular pilgrimages or the connections between religion and neo-nationalism. 

The conference is organised by the MOME Institute for Theoretical Studies in association with the Research Group of the Re-enchanting Central and Eastern Europe ERC.CZ at Charles University in Prague. The presenters from our university include associate professor Anna Keszeg from the Institute for Theoretical Studies, doctoral student Zoltán Körösvölgyi and associate professor and chief organiser of the event István Povedák.
