CoMRel concluding conference
The concluding conference of the CoMRel project takes place on May 31st, 2018, from 12:00 pm to 4 pm in the House of Literature in Oslo. The conference is aimed at the general public as well as stakeholders and researchers interested in issues on media and religion in societal conflicts.
In the media, religion is often presented through a perspective of conflict. The debates that follow can be characterized as heated. The Scandinavian reserach project ”Engaging With Conflicts in Mediatized Religious Environments” (CoMRel) has examined how conflict oriented depictions of religion in the media take place in local communities and schools, in broadcasting and amongst Facebook users. CoMRel is funded by the Cultural Conditions Underlying Social Change (SAMKUL) programme at The Research Council of Norway. This concluding conference marks the end of the CoMRel research project, and serves as a platform for the researchers to present and reflect on their findings.
