Interdisciplinary Research Group (IFG)

The Interdisciplinary Research Group (IFG) on Authenticity focuses on the ambivalent, yet widely used term ‘authenticity.’ The research group is thus dedicated to investigate current social processes of detraditionalisation, deinstitutionalisation, and individualisation in terms of authenticity. The research objective is to survey the effects and impacts of these transformational processes on religion(s) and to develop possible courses of action for religion(s) to react to and act within these transformational processes.
