International Conference on "Rapid Religious Cultural Change"

M.A. in Ethics and Public Affairs

While religious cultural change has been studied, there is a critical need for more research to determine the influences and processes of intentional religious cultural change and innovation. This need can be met through a collaboration among theologians, philosophers, ethicists, anthropologists, sociologists, and religious studies scholars, to name a few. To accomplish this work scholars will gather for a conference at Hong Kong Baptist University with a focus on rapid religious change in East Asian forms of religion. The central question is “Why do religious beliefs at times change very quickly and what kinds of societal impacts do these changes have?” This conference will generate new knowledge regarding how religions end, arise, and endure across time and space.
