The social sources of religious fundamentalist and anti-secularist identity

The social sources of religious fundamentalist and anti-secularist identity

Submission deadline: 06/30/2018

Scope and purposes

In an influential article, The Task of Liberal Theory after September 11, (Perspectives on Politics, June, 2004) J. Judd Owen puts forth as the principle issue of the new millennium: the single most profound theoretical challenge since liberalism's origins … is … the challenge of illiberal revealed theology. Judd raises this issue when discussing the Islamic theorist Sayyid Qutb (Milestones, Kazi, 2003), but certainly Judd does not restricted to this argument to Qutb or to Islam or to politics. What is being identified is a set of beliefs that oppose the very notion of 'modernity'.

In religious terms this includes opposition to opposition to ideas and practices that put 'man' before 'God'. Such beliefs are quite prevalent among by followers of Evangelical Christianity, Orthodox Judaism, and Sharia-based Islam. In more pragmatic terms, such beliefs often oppose assimilation into liberal secular society. In Israel, for instance, where most of the students are Jewish many Orthodox Jewish families refuse to educate their children in secular Israeli schools.

Politically, of course, Judd realizes that 'separatism' has always been a part of liberal society. What we propose to investigate is a separatism that does not include tolerance for the 'other'. Without necessarily speaking of discussing 'illiberal revealed theology', those who do research in many areas of contemporary life discover the social rationale for the strength and persistence of 'illiberal revealed theology'. These investigations include the study family life, but may extend out to schools and curriculum, and popular culture. Taken in its broadest sense, as faith is incorporated into social identity, the appeal of fundamentalism is quite profound. We propose to investigate areas in which the social role of religious fundamentalist and anti-secularist identity in a variety of contemporary settings.

• Sociology
