It is honor to invite you to attend a lecture of our colleague Njegoš Vujadinović as part of the cycle of lectures by new researchers at the Institute of Social Sciences.
The lecture will be dedicated a comparative analysis of the commodification of religion in the United States of America and the Republic of Serbia. Through the initial analysis of the development of neoliberalism and capitalism, an attempt is made to explain the framework in which it will be possible to more clearly follow the emergence of the commodification of religion as a specific occurrence and phenomenon within a wider global context. The analysis of the complex relationship between the market and religion in the USA can help in monitoring possible imitations of such tendencies on a much smaller and rather more homogeneous soil such as Serbia. During the lecture, it will be pointed out that, if there is a branched and free market, freedom from official religious authorities (institutions), then there will be the creation of a branched network of religious movements that are formed according to individual wishes and needs.
The aim of this lectures is promoting new researchers and familiarization with their previous work.
The lecture will be held on October 30, 2023, in the Great Hall of the Institute of Social Sciences, at 12:00 a.m.
