Join us in beautiful San Francisco as keynote speakers Mark Juergensmeyer (UC Santa Barbara), Saskia Sassen (Columbia), Nayan Chanda (Yale)—and nine other presenters -- explore the dynamics of globalizing forces on the established and emerging religions of South and East Asia. One of our central concerns will be to understand “the dialectical tension of codependence and codeterminism between religion and globalization.” 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? Please visit the conference website for more information.
