Workshop: Alternative Methods in the Science of Culture and Religion
hybrid format (Team workroom D2TYM7 / Zoom - https://cesnet.zoom.us/j/93737535350)
The scientific study of culture and religion has a long history filled with deep theoretical questions. However, we are just now gaining the methodological tools to properly answer these questions. In particular, techniques involving language analysis and ethnographic analysis give us access to samples that cannot be accessed with traditional survey and experimental methods, either because they are located in remote geographical regions or
because they existed in an earlier period of history. In this Q&A focused workshop, I will discuss—and answer questions about—new methods in the science of religion and culture.
