Stefan Binder winner of Gerardus van der Leeuw Award 2018

Out of seven excellent doctoral dissertations the award committee selected Stefan Binder’s dissertation, titled 'Total Atheism: Making mental revolutions in South India' as the most original and innovative. In addition, the dissertation was also considered to contribute the most to religious studies as an academic discipline, balancing carefully between ethnographic data and theoretical debates.

 

Binder’s study shows that theories in religious studies are thoroughly impregnated by Western concepts, and he proposes non-Eurocentric critical epistemology of secularity, faith and unbelief. He moreover presents his work in a very clear, coherent and consistent way.

 

For these reasons the committee decided to grant Stefan Binder the Gerardus van der Leeuw Award 2018.

The award committee:
Frans Wijsen (RU, Chair)
Thijl Sunier (VU)
Herman Beck (TU)
Annalisa Bitticci (UU)
