CONFERENCE | Liberalism, Religion & the Public Sphere in the Americas .18 April

By invitation only; please send expressions of interest to Dr. Deborah Toner deborah.toner@sas.ac.uk . The development of political, economic, scientific and cultural spheres separate to and autonomous from the Catholic Church in Latin America during the long nineteenth century was a central aspect of the secularising agenda of liberalism, which contributed to the reformulation of relations between religious institutions, the state, and public life. But this was neither a linear nor an uncontested process.

This workshop will explore reformist, laicist, and anticlerical positions towards the Church in Latin American society to highlight the complex processes of negotiation between different groups of liberals and the Church, as well as their effects on the public sphere. In addition, the workshop will incorporate North American perspectives to examine the emergence of Masonic and Protestant movements in Latin America in a comparative framework, exploring to what extent the liberal traditions in the Americas, both north and south, were affected by their different religious traditions.
