access_time1 day ago
In the information age, knowledge is power. Hence, facilitating the access to knowledge to wider publics empowers citizens and makes societies more democratic. How can publishers and authors contribute to this process? This podcast addresses this issue. We interview Professor Austin Choi-Fitzpatrick, whose book, The Good Drone: How Social Movements Democratize Surveillance (forthcoming with MIT Press) is undergoing a Massive Online Peer-Review (MOPR) process, where everyone can make comments on his manuscript. Additionally, his book will be Open Access (OA) since the date of publication. We discuss with him how do MOPR and OA work, how he managed to combine both of them and how these initiatives can contribute to the democratization of knowledge.You can participate in the MOPR process of The Good Drone through this link: https://thegooddrone.pubpub.org/Felipe G. Santos is a PhD candidate at the Central European University. His research is focused on how activists care for each other and how care practices within social movements mobilize and radicalize heavily aggrieved collectives.Learn more about your ad choices.

The history of Indian religions in the centuries leading up to the common era has been characterized in the scholarship by two distinct overarching traditions: the Brahmans (associated with Vedic texts, caste, and Vedic rituals) and the renouncer (śramaṇa) movements we see in the Upanishads, and in Jainism and Buddhism.  Were these traditions at odds with each other as “snake and mongoose” (attributed to the 2nd-century BCE Sanskrit grammarian Patañjali)?  Does “Brahmanism” pre-exist this pivotal encounter, or as it in fact forged therefrom? Was there such a thing, e.g., as a Buddhist Brahman in this era?  In his book The Snake and The Mongoose: The Emergence of Identity in Early Indian Religion (Oxford University Press, 2018), Nathan McGovern draws on ancient texts to problematize the distinction between Brahman and non-Brahman in this era, shedding light on the presence of various Buddhist, Jain and Vedic groups who equally identified as Brahmans.Learn more about your ad choices.

Tredegarville Baptist church boasts what must be among the most striking set of figures for any church in Wales. In four years, more than 500 people have been baptised - all of them adults professing their new-found Christian faith. Nearly all the converts have been asylum-seekers, the great majority from Iran, who’ve taken huge risks to reach this country, and often face a very long wait to know whether they’ll be granted permission to stay. What motivates this growth in faith among this community, and who is the man leading them? All Things Considered this week visits the church to meet some of the recent converts, together with Pastor Phylip Rees, the church's minister for the past fifteen years.

The Indian caste system is an ancient, pervasive institution of social organization within the subcontinent – or is it? Join me as I speak with Dr. Prakash Shah (Reader in Culture and Law at the Queen Mary University of London, UK) about his co-edited work, Western Foundations of the Caste System(Palgrave Macmillan, 2017). Ranging from ancient Indian history to modern British law, the contributions to this book advance a provocative thesis, namely, that what we refer to as Indian caste is more a function of Western Christian encounters with India than anything historically occurring on Indian soil.  Could this be the case? Could the caste system constitute a projection born of Western interpretive bias rather than an ancient Indian indigenous social institution?Learn more about your ad choices.

Religious Experience
All Things Considered BBC
access_time17 days ago
A Welsh player crosses the English line to score at a crucial moment. Television cameras capture a crowd in ecstasy, apparently transported into a realm of utter delight and fulfilment. On another occasion, those same cameras might be focussed on a charismatic group at worship - outstretched arms, faces reflecting an intensity of joy and wonder. Are these sensations of rapture in any way the same? This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Alister Hardy Religious Experience Research Centre, at the University of Wales Trinity St. David’s, and on All Things Considered today, Roy Jenkins explores how virtually anything can become a religious experience, even if it seems to have nothing to do with the way people usually practise a faith. And to what extent is it possible to have a faith which is not rooted in some kind of personal experience? Joining Roy to discuss this are: Prof Bettina Schmidt, Director of the Alister Hardy Religious Experience Research Centre; Rev Janet Fletcher, spirituality officer for the Church in Wales Bangor diocese and author of the Church in Wales Lent book; Rev Dr Gareth Leyshon, Catholic missionary working across the British Isles for the Sion community for evangelism; and Rev Dr Karen Smith, who until recently taught Church History and Christian Spirituality at South Wales Baptist College and Cardiff University and is now an Honorary Senior Research Fellow.

They’re among the most significant words in history. For around three thousand years, they’ve helped people decide between right and wrong. They’ve guided individual decisions, shaped cultures, and provided many societies, including our own, with the undergirding of a basic legal code. According to the Bible, the Ten Commandments were spoken by God to Moses on Mount Sinai, and they remain central to both Jewish and Christian traditions. At one time, most people in this country learned them as children. No longer. So to what extent do they remain known? And even where they are, in what sense can they still be regarded as relevant to the way we should live our lives in a world so totally unlike the one in which they were first delivered? Joining Roy Jenkins are author Ana Levy-Lyons; Rabbi Michoel Rose; Dr. Rosa Hunt of South Wales Baptist College; Stephen Clark, an evangelical minister in Bridgend; Richard Patterson, of the Cardiff Humanist Group and Gary Slaymaker, Film Critic.

Gil Ben-Herut,
New Books in Hindu Studies Marshall Poe
access_time30 days ago
Studies of Hindu saints tend to focus primarily on the saints themselves—their words, teachings, and practices—rather than tending to the often complex and complicated world of texts and traditions about those saints—which is how we have come to know them. Even when hagiographical writings are addressed, more often than not such writings are presumed to belong to a monolithic tradition in which certain texts simply contain more information or stories about the saints than others. In Śiva’s Saints: The Origins of Devotion in Kannada according to Harihara’s Ragaḷegaḷu (Oxford University Press, 2018), Gil Ben-Herut, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the University of South Florida, challenges such presumptions through his close examination of the text and contexts of the 12th-century Vīraśaiva hagiographical text Ragaḷegaḷu written in Kannada by Harihara. Providing theoretical insight into notions of sainthood itself as well as the politics of commemoration and the contentious worlds of ever-changing religious and other social identity formations, Śiva’s Saints examines the multiple goals of hagiographical literature like the Ragaḷegaḷu as well as how this text complicates our understandings of what Vīraśaivas today are most well-known for—their bhakti or inner devotion to Siva, their egalitarianism, and their challenging of Brahmanical norms. In doing so, Ben-Herut reveals significant nuances of the social worlds in which Harihara was embedded and to which his Ragaḷegaḷu is responding, most especially who Harihara casts as distinct but familial “others” versus those intimate “others” he agues should be kept out of the community. Through rigorous analysis and sensitivity to context, Śiva’s Saints demonstrates how close attention to the writings about saints can reveal the complex inner and outer workings of religious groups within specific historical social contexts. Dean Accardi is an Assistant Professor of History at Connecticut College. His work focuses on gender, religion, and politics in early modern Kashmir and how saints and sultans of that period continue to be invoked today in contestations over Kashmir’s social, cultural, religious, and political belonging.

All Things Considered BBC
access_time1 month ago
Roy Jenkins' guest for the second of a two part edition of All Things Considered is Chrissie Chapman, a Christian missionary and midwife who left Dinas Powis in the Vale of Glamorgan for one of the poorest countries on earth - and found both her life's work, and a family. Last week we heard of the challenges she faced 28 years ago when she arrived in the small East African state of Burundi to set up a maternity clinic and dispensary in a remote mountaintop location. She described a life changing encounter with angels and her conviction that her work in the war-ravaged country has been sustained by divine miracles. This week, Chrissie Chapman takes up the story where the civil war (which was to claim 300,000 lives) forced her to abandon the maternity clinic and start working in the camps packed with people displaced by Burundi's ethnic violence, and refugees from the genocide in neighbouring Rwanda. She had already adopted two daughters, she would eventually bring up more than 50 children, and she began by telling Roy Jenkins about the arrival of her adopted son.

All Things Considered BBC
access_time1 month ago
Roy Jenkins' guest for the first of a two part edition of All Things Considered is the single mother of three adopted children, who has brought up more than fifty others. She has done it in one of the poorest countries on earth, Burundi - politically unstable, with persistent violence, a refugee crisis, and the legacy of a civil war which took 300,000 lives. A trained midwife, Chrissie Chapman was living in Dinas Powys, in the Vale of Glamorgan, when she became convinced that she should travel to the small East African state on a short-term mission to open a maternity clinic and dispensary. That was 28 years ago. She went on to set up a centre for abandoned babies and traumatised children, and later a schools complex. And her own family grew along the way. She's brought many children into the world and also seen many dying along the way through disease and malnutrition. And she has been close to death herself - given just months to live in her early twenties, and all too familiar with deadly violence in her adopted country. In all this she's convinced that she's been sustained by divine miracles (and on one occasion by a squadron of angels). This programme was first broadcast in June 2018
