Description: Communing and Community:
Toward a Syncretic View of Immigrant Prayer in the California Southland
Presents on OCT. 19TH:
Panel Discussion
Responses to the Pew Forum Report on
"Asian Americans: A Mosaic of Faiths"

This panel brings together multiple experts in Asian American Studies,
Political Science, and Religious Studies to respond to the Pew Forum's most
recent report "Asian Americans: A Mosaic of Faiths." In mid-summer 2012, the
Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion and Public Life released a report on
the religious activities of Asian Americans. The report presents new survey
data regarding their religious affiliations, religious switching and
intermarriage, the perceived importance of religion, beliefs, practices, and
social and political attitudes. Dr. Karthick Ramakrishnan (UCR),
Dr. James Kyung-Jin Lee (UCI), Charles Townsend (UCR),
and Dr. Amanda Huffer (UCR) will present a panel discussion
deciphering and explaining the figures in the report as well as investigating
their import for future scholarship on the religiosity of Asian Americans.
