Perspektiven für die hermeneutisch-theologische Grundlegung einer subjektorientierten und kontextbezogenen Korandidaktik
Author: Fatima Cavis
Im aktuellen islamisch-religionspädagogischen Diskurs ist ein Abschied von der traditionellen Art der Wissensvermittlung nach dem inhaltsorientierten Konzept und die Zuwendung zu einem reflektierten Lernprozess, der die Subjekte und ihre Lebenswelten ernst nimmt, evident.
Dieser Paradigmenwechsel in der islamischen religiösen Bildung hat bestimmte Konsequenzen – auch für die Korandidaktik, die einen wesentlichen Bestandteil des islamischen Religionsunterrichts bildet. Die Autorin nimmt diese Problematik zum Anlass und untersucht in einem interdisziplinären Rahmen die offenbarungs- bzw. schrifttheologischen und die hermeneutisch-exegetischen Voraussetzungen einer subjektorientierten und kontextsensiblen Koranarbeit. In Auseinandersetzung mit diesen und weiteren zentralen Fragen liefert die Studie die ersten wichtigen Ergebnisse für die religionspädagogische sowie die hermeneutisch-theologische Grundlegung einer zeitgemäßen Korandidaktik.
The purpose of the Annual Review of the Sociology of Religion (ARSR) is to investigate the “new” role of religion in the contemporary world, which is characterized by cultural pluralism and religious individualism.

It is the aim of the ARSR to combine different methods within the social scientific study of religion. The ARSR employs an interdisciplinary and comparative approach at an international level, to describe and interpret the complexity of religious phenomena within different geopolitical situations, highlighting similarities and discontinuities. Dealing with a single theme in each volume, the ARSR intends to tackle the relationship between the practices and the dynamics of everyday life and the different religions and spiritualities, within the framework of post-secular society. All contributions are welcome, both those studying organizational aspects and those exploring individual religiosity.

The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.

"Gesellschaft - Ethik - Religion", die Buchreihe des Instituts für Christliche Sozialwissenschaften der Universität Münster, dokumentiert Forschungsarbeiten und wissenschaftliche Tagungen aus dem Feld der Christlichen Sozialwissenschaften. In der Perspektive der Sozialethik und ihrer Bezugswissenschaften werden ethisch herausfordernde Fragen der modernen Gesellschaft fachlich kompetent und multidisziplinär bearbeitet: Das Spektrum konkreter sozialwissenschaftlicher und sozialphilosophischer Problemstellungen reicht von Nachhaltigkeit im Umgang mit natürlichen Lebensgrundlagen über drängende Gerechtigkeitsherausforderungen bis hin zu Wertekommunikation unter den Bedingungen weltanschaulicher Pluralität. Beiträge zur sozialethischen Grundlagenforschung erörtern Paradigmen ethischer Argumentation, Quellen, Begründungsmuster und Gesprächsfähigkeit religiös gebundener und säkularer Ethik.

Brill's series International Studies in Religion and Society (ISRS) publishes about societal themes and their relation to religion from a social scientific point of view, also taking into account approaches from contemporary philosophical and legal research. The series’ aim is making contributions to the development of theories on the interplay between religion and society by focussing on a deeper understanding of different systems of thought, values and belief, and the ways in which these systems interact.

The series has published an average of 2,5 volumes per year over the last 5 years.
This series brings together contributions addressing the question of the unity versus conflict, closeness versus alienation, and convergence versus divergence entrenched in the infinite variety of collective identities illustrated by Jews in this era. The titles included investigate—each volume under its own angle—the principles, narratives, visions and commands which constitute in different places the essentials of Jewishness. As a rule, they ask whether or not one is still allowed to speak, at the beginning of this new century, of one—single and singular—Jewish People. Hence, this series is a podium for researchers of Judaism and the Jewish condition all over the world—from Israel to the United States, and from there to Argentina and Brazil as well as Russia, Ukraine or France, England and Germany. These investigations should yield an understanding of how far Judaism is still one while Jewishness is multifarious. The perspectives offered may draw from sociology and the social sciences as well as from history and the humanities in general. This series aspires to constitute a meeting point for them all. It will be of interest not only to scholars in Jewish Studies but also to anyone interested in the theory and practice of major phenomena of our time like transnational diasporas, the globalization of ethnicity, and present-day relations of religiosity and laicity which, in one way or another, are akin to the preoccupations of researchers in the field of Jewish identities.

The series published an average of four volumes per year over the last 5 years.

The book series Religion in the Americas is devoted to the study of religious influences within and between South, Central, Latin, and North America. A particular focus lies on the interaction of different forms of Christianity with the societies, politics, religions, economies, symbols, materialities, and cultures of the variety of peoples in the Americas. The complex theologies, philosophies, and contributions of their expressions and experiences throughout the Americas have profoundly influenced not only Catholicism but many other religions - in the Americas and all across the globe. In addition to Christianity, the editors welcome submissions on Indigenous, New Age, Africa- and migrant-derived religions. Religion in the Americas brings to the forefront new works that deal with these issues, particularly from the perspectives of religious studies, cultural anthropology, sociology, history, psychology, and Latin American Studies.

Since its announcement by Xi Jinping in 2015, “Sinicization” has become the slogan that guides Chinese official policy towards religion. What does it mean? What effects is it having on Chinese religions? Where will it lead? This book, with contributions from experts in the major religious traditions in China, is one of the first in English that answers these questions.
From the top down, Sinicization is a project to control all forms of religion in China, even ancient indigenous forms, to make them conform to the demands of its Party-State. From the bottom up, however, religious believers are using the slogan either to sincerely attempt to adapt traditional practices to their modern cultural context or to protect their faith by offering lip service to government demands – or some combination of the two.
