RAPT (Religion and Political Theory) Lecture Series - Slavica Jakelic
Slavica Jakelic is an Assistant Professor of Humanities and Social Thought at Valparaiso University's Honors College and an Associate Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia. Her scholarly interests and publications centre on religion and identity, theories of religion and secularism, relationship between religious and secular humanisms, and conflict resolution. Previously to joining the Valparaiso University faculty, Dr. Jakelic worked at or had been a fellow of several interdisciplinary institutes--the Erasmus Institute for the Culture of Democracy in Croatia; the Institute for the Study of Economic Culture at Boston University; the Institut fur die Wissenschaften vom Menschen in Vienna, Austria; the Erasmus Institute at the University of Notre Dame; the Martin Marty Center at the University of Chicago; and the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study.
Professor Jakelic is a co-editor of two volumes, The Future of the Study of Religion and Crossing Boundaries: From Syria to Slovakia, a co-editor of The Hedgehog Review's issue "After Secularization," and, most recently, the author of Collectivistic Religions: Religion, Choice, and Identity in Late Modernity. She is currently working on a book entitled The Practice of Religious and Secular Humanisms.
The RAPT lecture series showcases the work of prominent international scholars in the study of religion and political theory. It is organised by UCL’s Religion and Political Theory (RAPT) Centre. RAPT is a 5-year project funded by the European Research Council and led by Professor Cécile Laborde. It aims to interrogate the special status of religion (ethics, epistemology and practices) in western political and legal theory.
