The spread of religion has always been closely linked to the growth and proliferation of new technologies. While the contribution of technological innovations to economic change is widely known and accepted, how new technologies impact on the experience of the sacred and the divine in Asian societies is scarcely documented or understood.
Hosted by the Asia Research Institute on 18 – 20 January 2006 in Singapore, this graduate workshop sets out to address the historical, social, cultural and political relations between technology and belief in the Asian context.
Graduate students who are interested in presenting a research paper at the workshop should submit a 250-word abstract of their proposed paper no later than 31 August 2005 using a proposal form which can be accessed at the following link:
