Simagine Research Consortium (External organisation)

    Activity: MembershipAcademic


    In our modern times, the 'Great Stories' have come to an end, but the relationship between secular society and religion is once again high on the agenda. How do people imagine the meaning of their existence in a globalized world? Professors Laurens ten Kate and Hans Alma received a grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) in 2017 to develop a new international consortium that conducts research into so-called 'social imaginaries'.

    Scientists from the US and Europe are working together to shape the project Social Imaginaries between Secularity and Religion in a Globalizing World. The consortium, called SIMAGINE, now consists of 11 European, African and American partners and is led by Ten Kate. Philosopher Laurens ten Kate is professor by special appointment of Liberal Religiosity and Humanism. Hans Alma is a professor at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
