"Religion and Globalization in Asia: Prospects, Patterns, and Problems for the Coming Decade." March 13 &14, 2009, USF Center for the Pacific Rim, University of San Francisco.
Join us in beautiful San Francisco as keynote speakers Mark Juergensmeyer (UC Santa Barbara), Saskia Sassen (Columbia), Nayan Chanda (Yale)—and ten other presenters -- explore the dynamics of globalizing forces on the established and emerging religions of South and East Asia. How do communication technologies, capital flows, security issues, transnationalism, immigration and migration, and identity politics contribute to social conditions in which some kinds of religious belief and practice prosper and proliferate, while others are adversely affected?
Additional themes and issues can be found on our website at http://www.pacificrim.usfca.edu/religionandglobalization.html.
