Presentation on ‘The Limits of Religious Diversity in the Public Sphere’

14 March, 2017

Department of Sociology, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

On Tuesday 14th March Margarita Markoviti, postdoctoral researcher for the Greek case study, was hosted by the Department of Sociology of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, as part of their ISOR seminar series on ‘Research in Sociology of Religion’. Dr. Markoviti presented her recent research on ‘The Limits of Religious Diversity in the Public Sphere: Freedom of Religious Expression and Worship in the city of Athens’. She discussed her study of the freedom of religious expression and worship in a context of increasing religious pluralism, focusing on the Greek capital of Athens as an indicative case of a city in which the rising waves of immigration have, since the late 1990s and even more recently, challenged both the “prevailing” position of the Orthodox Church in the country and longstanding perceptions of the meaning and use of “public spaces”.
