Stepping Out of the Ivory Tower:
Social Science as a Weapon in the “Cult Wars”

By Dr. Eileen Barker, London School of Economics

Wednesday night, November 13th, 7:00 p.m. in Nunemaker Auditorium, Monroe Hall, Loyola University

This event is a talk with the founder of INFORM, an educational charity which provides objective information about new religious movements: INFORM is a non-government organization (NGO) that draws on the methodology of the social sciences to compete with the media, the movements themselves, and their opponents in a robust marketplace promoting alternative images of minority religions, or, “cults.”

“Whilst one of the central principles of the social sciences is that they should be as ‘value free’ as possible, this does not mean that they should not be ‘value relevant.’ Dr. Eileen Barker’s talk will describe some of the ways in which the speaker has found herself ‘making a difference’ in the field that she has been researching for the past four decades: New religious movements and the social reactions to which they have given rise. In particular, she will describe the founding of INFORM, an NGO, which, drawing on the methodology of the social sciences, competes with (amongst others) the media, the movements themselves, and their opponents in a robust marketplace promoting alternative images of minority religions.”

Eileen Barker, PhD, PhD h.c., OBE, FBA, is Professor Emerita of Sociology with Special Reference to the Study of Religion at the London School of Economics (LSE,) University of London. She has over 300 publications (translated into 27 languages), which include the award-winning The Making of a Moonie: Brainwashing or Choice? and New Religious Movements: A Practical Introduction. In the late 1980s, with the support of the British Government and mainstream Churches, she founded INFORM, an educational charity based at the LSE, which provides information about minority religions that is as accurate, objective, and up-to-date as possible. In 2000, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appointed her as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for “services to INFORM.”

Time: 7 pm to 9 pm

Contact: Sara Butler · sbutler@loyno.edu · 504-865-2099

Location: Bobet Hall, room 214

Emilio Estevez’s 2010 dramatic film, “The Way,” honors El Camino de Santiago, known as the Way of St. James, a Catholic pilgrimage route to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. As part of the Medieval Film Fest, Loyola University New Orleans presents a free screening of the film Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m.

 

The event is open to the public and set for Bobet Hall, room 214. To introduce the film, Loyola Institute for Ministry Director Thomas Ryan, Ph.D., will lead a discussion about “Pilgrimage in the Middle Ages.”

A collaboration between Estevez and his father Martin Sheen, “The Way” is a powerful and inspirational story about a man who travels to France to recover the body of his adult son who died while attempting to walk the ancient spiritual trail. Overcome by grief and in homage to his son, the man embarks on The Way of St. James to honor his son's desire to finish the trail. In addition to Sheen and Estevez, the film stars Deborah Kara Unger and James Nesbitt.

For more information, contact Sara Butler, director of Medieval Studies, at 504-865-2099.
