Religion in the Digital Age II: Mediating "the Human" in a Globalizing Asia

With a generous gift from the Henry Luce Initiative on Religion and International Affairs, on September 27 and 28th, 2013 the NYU Center for Religion and Media, hosted an event that explored the religious digital mediation in cultural forms of a globalized Asia. The conference explored questions about the role of digital media and religoin in personhood, political movements, human rights, and religious organizations. The presenters emphasized the importance of articulating the aesthetic constructions of religion as they are mediated and circulated in digital culture. As always, I want to thank Angela Zito (NYU) and Faye Ginsburg (NYU) from the Center for Religion and Media for hosting another insightful, interdisplinary, and ground breaking event.
