Philine Lewek studied Protestant theology at Martin Luther University (Halle-Wittenberg), Near East School of Theology (Beirut, Lebanon), Philipps University (Marburg) and Leipzig University. Her award-winning diploma thesis in the subject of religious studies dealt with the term “Abendland” (Occident) as a Christian motif in metapolitics of the New Right. During her studies she was politically active in various ways: Community Radio, anti-racist remembrance work or in solidarity with those affected by the 2019 Halle attack. As part of the DFG graduate program “Power of Interpretation” in Rostock, she is researching the possible emergence of a “theology of the new right movement” and the interpretive claims that are made against hegemonic Protestant theology. She was participant of DialoguePerspectives in 2018/19. In the programme year 2022/23 she is one of the four DialoguePerspectives inter / religious / worldview advisors.
˝The DialoguePerspective programme has created a unique platform for discourse and debate on a wide range of topics that have significance for the EU currently and in its future. DialoguePerspectives offers the opportunity to share, learn and explore as a community, questions that are relevant to our identity and the diversity of Europe. I highly recommend the programme.
