Written as a collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens(1990) had an active and long-term fanbase before the debut of the Amazon Prime miniseries. Its adaptation, brought to fruition by Gaiman as a promise to Pratchett before Pratchett’s 2015 death, however, has not only brought new fans into the fold, but increased the visibility of the original text.

Calculating how many Bibles are sold in the United States is a virtually impossible task” says “The Good Book Business” article published in The New Yorker in 2006, underlines the billion dollar industry of Bible-publishing in the U.S.

Looking for panelists for the Association of Asian Studies (AAS) annual conference in Boston, March 19-22, 2020. Below is the panel description:

This panel seeks to explore the intersections between religion and technology in Asian cultures and societies. Taking a broad view of religion, as lived and performative, the aim of this panel is to show how the theological, the technological and the anthropological intermingle to the point of indistinguishability in Asian cultures. The goal is to go beyond an instrumentalist approach wherein technology is enlisted into the service of religion and religious belief. I seek papers related (but not limited) to the following:

1) de/post colonial approach to religion, technology, secularism
