About the Cluster
Through attentiveness to the intersections of multiple historical, social, linguistic and somatic cultural moments, the Religious and Secular Entanglement Cluster intends to facilitate discussions on the topic of ‘religion’ and the ‘secular’ as it relates to group formation and power, according to History of Consciousness graduate student Josh Brahinsky. With added emphasis on UCSC research, this year’s proposal hopes to expand the internal dialogue and to facilitate productive workshops with visiting scholars and graduate students. The cluster organized the Tanya Luhrmann Workshop: “How the Hippie Christians Became the Religious Right” in the Fall 2012 quarter and will host scholars in the upcoming quarters.
