Drawing upon original materials (ethnography, ph otography, digital survey, oral history, critical reflections, etc.), this panel aims to bring together pioneering scholarship on local and/or transna tional responses from religious actors (individuals and institutions) to th ese unprecedented circumstances. In this sense, our scope extends beyond re ligious activities which are strictly concerned with the “religious convers ion” of others, and encompasses a wide range of goal-oriented activities in the domains of social, political, cultural, and economic transformation. \ n\nIn line with this perspective, panellists will interrogate how religious actors during this period have \n\n- adapted their rituals and communal pr actices; 2) developed creative measures of protection, healing and salvatio n; 3) participated in urgent public health and care activities; 4) renegoti ated their relationships with states and societies; and/or 5) dealt with in ternal tensions and dissent. The questions addressed in this panel include, but are not limited to ? \n\nWhat have been the roles of spiritualiti es, religious institutions, and religious subjects\nduring the Covid-19 pan demic?\nWhat are the relationships between religions, states, and societies in Asia, and how have the dynamics of these relationships changed during t he sanitary crisis?\nHow have religious organisations practiced care throug h various health/charitable/counselling/philanthropic activities during the pandemic?\nHow have such practices been contested among different religion s and players? What role do faith-based NGOs play in times of pandemic?\nWh at opportunities and challenges have religious actors found regarding the i mpact of online media and digital technologies at various levels of their s ocial action (including worship, healing, proselytism, and fundraising)?\nH ave religious individuals and organisations created new rituals and perform ances, new sites of worship and spirituality, of community solidarity?\nHow have liturgical and ritualistic practices been negotiated and adapted duri ng the Covid-19 outbreak?
