Workshop | A Conversation with Mark Sedgwick on Universalism, Perennialism, and the Modern Religious Bookshelf
Organised by Christian Meyer, project "The Invention of the Modern Religious Bookshelf: Canons, Concepts and Communities", Research Area 3: "Future Perfect".
Join us in a conversation with Prof. Mark Sedgwick (University of Aarhus) on Perennialism, Universalism, and the modern religious bookshelf. The conversation will be based on a reading of parts of his book Western Sufism: From the Abbasids to the New Age (2016). We will discuss chapter 8 ("Transcendentalism, Theosophy, and Sufism"), chapter 9 ("Toward the One: Inayat Khan and the Sufi Movement"), and part of chapter 10 ("Tradition and Consciousness", pp. 135-176) with him.
A PDF of the chapters will be provided and can be sent upon request.
Please note: The conversation from 2-4 pm will be followed by Mark Sedgwick's public talk from 6-8 pm on the same day. If you are interested to take part in the conversation from 2-4 pm, please register beforehand with Tim Jungenkrüger, email@example.com.
