The recent religious turn in contemporary Continental philosophy and the reconsideration of secularization theses in the social sciences have created new opportunities for scholars to rethink the secular. Our roundtable will comprise scholars working in literary-historical fields from the seventeenth century to the present. Each scholar will present a position statement; an open discussion with the audience will follow.
