    Emergent Forms of Religious Life in Contemporary Mexico aims to develop a preliminary exploration of the broad theme of emergent religious forms in Mexican public life. We hope to address new narratives and social practices developed to cope with everyday life in a society that has undergone such rapid and deep transformation, the nature of engagement of contemporary religious organizations and trends in Mexican public life, and the proliferation of cult-like organizations that do not take on expressly religious forms, but may have kinship with them, such as Michoacns Knights Templar, Dianetics, or even the culture of pyramid scheme-like organizations such as Herbalife. The full schedule, including the complete list of panelists and participants, is available at ircpl.org. This conference is free and open to all. Registration is appreciated, but not required. Please register now at ircpl.org.
