“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 Michoacán’s Knights Templar, Dianetics, or even the culture of pyramid scheme-like organizations such as Herbalife.
