Abstract or Description

The chapter explores how the material practices of postsecularity i.e. lived and embodied practices of religion and belief - produce new spaces of urban political and civic engagement in conjunction with secular beliefs, worldviews and practices. These new spaces are theorized upon using both theological, Marxist and social science disciplines and amplified with case studies.
