Sensational Religion: Sense and Contention in Material Practice focuses on sensory cultures of religions as well as the degree to which the senses and sensation lie at the heart of contention over religious objects and spaces. The conference is equally about controversy and about religion’s material engagements of the senses. In addition to these specific topics, this event also invites into public interaction people who might not ordinarily find space to converse with one another on such subjects. Artists, curators, religious practitioners, architects, historians, critics, and theologians number among participants.
