Srinivas featured in the Arlington Advocate for research fellowship

January 11, 2013

Associate Professor of Communication Studies Tulasi Srinivas talks to the Arlington Advocate about her research fellowship to study how Hindu priests adapt to new technologies and globalization. “In actuality, priests are not resisting change nor following a business strategy,” said Srinivas. “They are leading new ways of thinking in terms of how to live a moral life in this globalized world.”

Srinivas will spend January through July at the Kate Hamburger Kolleen Center for the Study of Religion and Society at the Universitat Ruhr-Bochum in Germany as part of her research fellowship for the global study of religion. She will be working on her book, Forging Faith: Ambivalent Globalization and Innovative Religion.
