The main question that this seminar poses is if, and how, bodies, but also other material forms, can be considered secular. If so, how do we theorise and conceptualise secular embodiment and other material forms? Which new understandings about the secular or secularity may emerge from these explorations? What are suitable approaches and methods to study secular materiality?
