The International Workshop aims for a broad transdisciplinary and transnational discourse to examine nuances of the secular present in the European societies of the 19th and the early 20th centuries. The focus is on freethinkers taken as Europe’s outstanding secular avant-gardes, including those of East-Central Europe. Contrasting di erent forms of secularity, we will analyze and discuss
the ways European freethinkers contributed to the concept of the modern nation and helped defining its specifics and values. Thereby, the workshop traces the rooting of the secular projects and sheds light on a set of heterogeneous religious, social and cultural backgrounds as well as the projects concrete designs such as the promotion of a material-scientific world view or initiatives to leave church.
