Over at Religion in American History Kelly Baker and I discuss religion panels and papers at this year’s American Studies Association. We even get into a comparison between the ASA and the American Academy of Religion. It was such a great back and forth that one post wasn’t enough. Find part 1 here and part 2 here.
If you’re at the American Studies Association this weekend and you’re interested in questions of religion, globalization, and transformation than you might want to check out the panel I’m doing with some other great folks:
12:00 PM – 1:45 PM
Religion and American Culture Caucus: Travel and Transformation: Global Perspectives on American Religious Cultures
Hilton Baltimore Key Ballroom 07
Opium, Alcohol, and Methodists in Singapore
American Hinduism: A Global Religion in the Nineteenth Century
From “Shanti’s” to Spandex: The Western Twist on Yoga
What Role Does Religion Play among Filipino Immigrants? Imagining a Different Self-Understanding of Modernity
I was doing some googling around looking for images for a digital storytelling project I’m working on when I cam across this image. I found it rather remarkable.
