je_commercialisation_du_rel_02lIISMM-EHESS, salle Lombard, 75006 Paris (M° Saint-Placide ou Notre-Dame-des-champs)

Like other regions of the world, South-East Asia has, since the mid-1980s, seen the rise of a new “spirit of capi- talism”, linked to the growth of a middle class. Various reli- gious mass-organizations have developed new discourses on wealth and innovative techniques of financing. At their helm, we often find charismatic figures who are responding to the demands of those in search of meaning in an increasingly destructured modern urban life setting. In doing so, these actors operate on a “spiritual marketplace” characterized by great fluidity and competition.

This phenomenon however should not be understood simply as a uniform and constant imposition of economic norms on the religious. Rather, it is “a set of highly complex negotiated interaction” (R. Wuthnow), through which “moral economies” are emerging in South-East Asia. With scholars specializing in different areas and religious traditions, the objective of this conference is to look at the different ways through which tensions between religious ethics and economic rationalization are negotiated, both ideologically and institutionally.
