Another idea for a listening (love them) next semester is Paul Cloke’s lecture:

Postsecular Stirrings? Geographies of hope in amongst neoliberalism
http://www.geog.qmul.ac.uk/research/centres/citycentre/events/index.html

I’d be instrested to explore the resonances – and any disonances – with Miacheal Sandel’s notion of a new politics of the common good: ‘Why should we not bring our moral and religeous convictiosn to bear in public discourse about justice and rights?’ See also
