We present Religion Goes Online at the International Meeting on Business, Institutions and the New Normal

Posted on

Last Monday, March 1st, Sílvia Pascual and Adriana Chiva, members of the Blanquerna Observatory on Media, Religion and Culture, represented the Observatory at the online conference “International Meeting on Business, Institutions and the New Normal”, organized by the Camilo Prado Foundation, the European Academy of Management and Business Economics, the Blanquerna School of Communication and International Relations, the Emerson College and the Rey Juan Carlos University.

Virtually, Pascual and Chiva presented one of the Observatory’s most recent projects: Religion Goes Online. The project, in the same way that the researchers explained it, tries to gather the religious initiatives born from the pandemic to display them together on the website created. Faced with group meeting regulations and the closure of sacred spaces around the world, religious communities saw the need to bring their celebrations and traditions to the digital world. With such creativity and innovation, Religion Goes Online was born as a window into this fact, allowing web visitors to deliver new initiatives in order to enrich the project.
