Adrian Hermann is Professor of Religion and Society at the Forum Internationale Wissenschaft (FIW) of the University of Bonn.


This year’s AAR Presidential Theme calls for “thinking about the actual human implications of religion in a world upended.” Given NAASR’s work as a critical engagement, this chapter asks what does it mean to frame the world which we study as a “world upended”? How can we think critically about not just crisis itself but also about what is constructed as “crisis”?
