Announcing the publication of Place/No-Place in Urban Asian Religiosity edited by Joanne Punzo Waghorne, ARI-Springer Asian Series. Dordrecht/Heidelberg/London/New York: Springer, 2016.

The volume developed from an international conference held at Syracuse organized by Ann Gold, Gareth Fisher and Joanne Waghorne with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the Central New York Humanities Corridor. The volume published through the Asia Research Institute (National University of Singapore) ARI-Springer series remains Syracuse-rich with chapters by Ann Gold and Gareth Fisher plus work of our alums Yohan Yoo and Juliana Finucane and a recent PhD from anthropology, Madhura Lohokare.
