Öffentlicher Abendvortrag von Professorin Anne Koch, Ph. D. (University College of Education of the Diocese of Linz) und Professor Dr. Karsten Lehmann (University College of Education, Wien / Krems) im Rahmen der internationalen Fachtagung „The transmission of religion under altered conditions in Europe, scenarios and political impact“
The last two decades have seen an increasing interest in the role religion plays for adolescents. Major statistical surveys have begun to deal with this dimension of youth research. So far, most of the respective studies are, however, focusing on urban youth. The lecture will provide insights into the transmission and transformation of religion within rural areas in Austria. It will present initial findings from a joint project undertaken by three University Colleges of Education in Austria. This research shows that religion still plays a major role in the worldviews of adolescents in rural Austria. It documents also that their ideas of religion differ, however, significantly from traditional approaches.
Anne Koch is research professor for interreligiosity at the private University of Education of the Diocese of Linz (PHDL). With a background in cultural study of religion her research focuses on contemporary religion and religious pluralism. She is co-editor of the Journal of Religion in Europe and the Bloomsbury Handbook for the Cultural and Cognitive Study of Religion. In two recent publications she analyses the representation of ‘world religions’ in German language children’s books.
Karsten Lehmann is a Scholar of Religion as well as a Sociologist. He received an MA from the University of Lancaster, an PhD from the University of Tübingen and a postdoctoral degree from the University of Bayreuth. At the moment he holds a Professorship for ‚Interreligiosity‘ at the KPH Vienna / Krems and is Vistiting Professor at the University of Greifswald. Lehmann’s research focuses on religion in international relations, interreligious dialogue as well as structures of religious plurality in Austria.
