During the first half of the session, we wish to discuss the attached concept paper ('Modeling Religious Convergence') which attempts to provide some structure to our future work within the research field. We will be very grateful for critical input from the plenum.
The remainder of the session will be devoted to globalized Christmas, with inputs by:
Thomas Hauschild (Santa Claus and other Christmas spirits)
Alexandra Cuffel (Judaism and Christmas)
Stefan Reichmuth (Islamic responses to intrusive Christmas folklore)
Alexander Nagel ("It´s just for the children: Christmas celebrations of Muslim migrants in Germany")
