Work, Pray, Code - A Conversation with Carolyn Chen
From jlegath Legath
Carolyn Chen's Work Pray Code reveals how tech giants are reshaping spirituality to serve their religion of peak productivity. Silicon Valley is known for its lavish perks, intense work culture, and spiritual gurus. Work Pray Code explores how tech companies are bringing religion into the workplace in ways that are replacing traditional places of worship, blurring the line between work and religion and transforming the very nature of spiritual experience in modern life.
Carolyn Chen, a sociologist, is Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research focuses on religion, spirituality, and work in the new economy, as well as Asian American religions.
She was interviewed by CCSR Visiting Fellow, Lauren Kerby.
This event is part of the Religion and the Public Conversation series. The theme for the 2022-2023 year is "Religion and Technology: From Codex to Coding."
