Georgetown University Professors José Casanova and Peter Phan are leading a multi-year interdisciplinary project on Asian-Pacific Catholicism and globalization. At this conference the project convened an international group of scholars to examine the historical phase of globalization of Catholicism throughout Asia from the sixteenth century to the present, the role of Catholicism as a “public religion” in diverse Asian-Pacific contexts, and the early formation of trans-regional Pan-Asian and Pacific Catholic institutions, networks, theologies, and identities from Vatican II to the present. Panelists related their ongoing research to the challenges facing the Church and the Asia-Pacific region in the years ahead.
