Call for papers for The Mission of Development: Religion and Techno-Politics in Asia
August 31, 2015 - 00:00
The conference seeks to reflect on the key question of what the relationships between mission and development are and how these have changed over time.
It aims to interrogate the complex relationships between Christian mission and international aid and development in Asia (broadly defined). We welcome historical and/or anthropological examinations of detailed case studies involving missionaries and development actors; whether they interact in key sites of negotiation of aspirations — ranging from local projects to the World Council of Churches or the UN — or relate to communities and institutions in the course of project implementation.
Deadline for submission of paper proposals: 31st of August 2015
Venue: Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore
