Eminent Monks (150-1500CE)

Eminent Monks (150-1500CE)

Cluster Leader: Marcus Bingenheimer, Temple University

The cluster “Religion and Technology” investigates how changes in communication technology have impacted East Asian religion and its study. The cluster is not only concerned with historical transitions from written to printed, or from printed to digital information, but also asks how current developments in information technology influence the practice and the study of East Asian religion.

The fieldwork and training aspect of this cluster aims to show how recent advances in information technology can be gainfully applied to the study of Asian religions. Participants will explore techniques such as GIS, social network analysis, text mining, and others, in order to gain new perspectives and acquire new skills.
