Science and Religion: Why Hong Kong and Taiwan are Different
In this lecture, Elaine Howard Ecklund, David R. Johnson, and Di Di will present core findings from the largest and most comprehensive international study of scientists’ attitudes toward religion, gender, and ethics ever undertaken, including a survey of 20,000 scientists and indepth interviews with over 600 of them. They will explore the nuances of what scientists think about religion and spirituality across different national contexts, the ways scientists in Hong Kong and Taiwan are distinct from those in all other countries studied in how they define and understand religion, and the impact of religion on gender representation in scientific communities. The lecture will also include an opportunity for attendees to submit questions for a Q&A session moderated by Di Di.
The speakers will give their lecture by Zoom.
