****Apologies to those of you receiving this announcement more than once.
Please feel free to distribute to your own relevant networks****



Prof David Gilbert (Royal Holloway) and I would like to draw your attention
to a new listserve that we have established, CITY-FAITH-FORUM, and to
encourage you to subscribe and contribute to some new and exciting
discussions and exchange of information.


CITY-FAITH-FORUM developed from AAG sessions in Boston, forthcoming
conferences in UK and The Netherlands on the postsecular city and the EU-7FP
FACIT project. The list facilitates academic discussion of the relationship
between urban change and religion, with attention to the following themes:
(1) geographies of secularization and the postsecular; (2) significance of
faith-based organizations in urban policy and planning; and (3) implications
of religion for urban politics and urban social cohesion. We encourage
critical academic inquiry and do not advocate or favour any religious,
theological or faith-based orientation.


If you would like to join us please visit:
www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A0=city-faith-forum, click on "Join or
Leave CITY-FAITH-FORUM" and add your details online.


We look forward to hearing from you.
