Experimental Religion, John Nelson USF

September 26, 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Crawford 115

How do people navigate the complexities of religion in late-modern societies? What sociocultural influences, dynamics, and histories shape an individual’s decision to investigate Sufism, practice meditation, join an evangelical church...or avoid religion entirely? Drawing upon a forthcoming book (fall 2013) and extended, multi-site fieldwork in Japan, this illustrated talk tracks the rapidly-changing nature of religious affiliation in a globalizing world. It will also outline a research methodology that can serve anthropologists, sociologists, and historians in potentially useful ways.
