About

Carolyn Chen (Comparative Ethnic Studies, Berkeley) will be in conversation with Melissa Borja (American Culture & A/PIA Studies, UM) about her recent book, Work Pray Code: When Work Becomes Religion in Silicon Valley. Work Pray Code explores how tech companies in Silicon Valley are bringing religion into the workplace in ways that are replacing traditional places of worship, blurring the line between work and religion and transforming the very nature of spiritual experience in modern life.

 

This event is part of the Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies Fall Lecture Series and is co-sponsored by the Center for Ethics, Society, and Computing (ESC).
