Political Dynamics in Southeast Asia (NYC)
What role are religious communities and leaders playing in civic life in Southeast Asia today? Learn more on Friday, November 8, during a full-day conference and exclusive screening of the documentary Exiled.
In partnership with the NY Southeast Asia Network (NYSEAN), this full-day conference will include a documentary screening as well as feature expert panelists from across the US and abroad. These scholars and activists will present their work on a range of topics and questions, including:
- >> Is there pushback from the church in the Philippines or from Buddhist groups in Thailand to the weakening of civil rights?
- >> Has religious practice or theology responded to political changes or are they driving them in some way?
- >> Are we seeing cultural (art, music, cinema, TV, etc.) responses to increased religiosity (in Myanmar or Indonesia, for example)? What do these responses look like and where and from whom do we see them?
- >> Are there deeper historical comparisons that can be made by looking at earlier periods of religious identity formation and earlier ties between religious communities and ruling structures?
We hope to see you there for this important discussion! Please RSVP in order to attend this event.
