Recently, the corona pandemic has not only created vast economic and social rifts both across and within societies but has also brought religious communities further into the spotlight. Religious communities are increasingly seen as vital stakeholders – inter alia for providing relief in times of intersecting crises, offering psychosocial support, advocating (or hindering!) adherence to public health measures, contributing to post COVID-19 recovery and offering visions for a sustainable post COVID-19 future. Moreover, since March 2020 the world has seen a rapid increase of digitalization in people’s everyday lives. This extends to and severely impacts on religious communities, religious practices and religious communication both in the global South and North. At the same time, the digitalization processes propelled by the current crisis pose fundamental challenges to religious communities’ social and pastoral work, as in many instances social level religious interaction needs to take place entirely without physical gatherings or with substantially reduced ones.

The interdisciplinary lecture series will scrutinize the religion and sustainable development nexus through the lens of the digital age brought about by the corona pandemic. It is convened jointly with the University of the Western Cape, South Africa. The programme will be uploaded to before the semester start.
