Abstract [en]

In 2013, I defended my dissertation Existential Configurations. On how the understanding of life is constituted in a social context. One of the scientific contributions of the study is a conceptual development of importance when we talk about people's understanding of their lives and how it takes shape in a social and cultural context. “Existential configuration” gives example of one of the theoretical concepts developed during the dissertation work. The concept was developed in dialogue with the concept used by Anders Jeffner, and the dissertation challenges, based on the empirical material, the ‘worldview’ concept.

The paper presents an empirical example on how teachers at Stockholm University use the concept of existential configurations and related concepts as tools for those who will become teachers in religious education and who share the ambition to broaden and deepen the conversation in the intercultural environment of the classroom.
