The Ph. D. candidates of the Groupe Sociétés, Religions, Laïcités (EPHE-CNRS) organise a colloquim, devoted to Religious Facts and Media. It will take place in Paris, at the GSRL, on the 23rd and 24th of March 2016.

This colloquium will open for discussion the processes and issues at stake related to the mediatization of religion in a French society that largely considers itself to be secular. It will focus on the mainstream news media, both in their conventional and digital forms. It aims to encourage reflection about the mechanisms of information production on religious facts and to question the specificity of the media coverage of religious facts in France compared to foreign media practices.

It is opened to researchers, post-doctoral fellows and ph. D. candidates, French and foreign, from all fields.
