Welcome to the East Asian Society for the Scientific Study of Religion

EASSSR is an international academic society established to encourage meaningful communication among social scientists who study religion in East Asia and facilitate further development of the scientific study of religion in this region. Whereas research on religion has traditionally adopted a theoretical framework based on Western, Protestant norms, EASSSR encourages empirical studies that situate religion within the East Asian context. This society aims to provide an academic platform, in which all scholars of religion can extend the boundaries of social scientific understanding of religions by communicating and exchanging their ideas and knowledge about religious situations of East Asian societies
