    Mexico’s democratic transition of the past three decades developed in tandem with deep structural change at all levels of society, including in the sphere of religious belief, organization and practice. A field of religious choice and competition has rapidly developed, alongside the new field of competetion between political parties. This two-day seminar explores the emergent religious forms in contemporary Mexican public life, and includes themes such as: new narratives and social practices for coping with changing forms everyday life; the nature of engagement of religious organizations and trends in Mexican public life—ranging changing strategies within the Catholic Church to Pentecostalism and beyond; and the proliferation of cults ranging from the Santa Muerte and Michoacán’s Knights Templar, to multi-level marketing organizations.
