The USC Knight Program in Media and Religion, The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences present the Atlas of Global Pentecostalism, a dynamic database of the fastest growing religion on earth.
On Monday, February 24 at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, creators Bregtje van der Haak and Richard Vijgen will present the Atlas, a dynamic online database that visually maps the stupendous growth of global Pentecostalism as a diverse and networked religion. The database uses global crowd sourcing, big data, cinematography, interviews and academic collaborations to provide an independent perspective on Pentecostalism as it evolves. A discussion with Donald E. Miller of the Center for Religion & Civic Culture and Jesse Miranda of the Miranda Center for Hispanic Leadership will follow. ASC 207, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The conversation continues on Tuesday, February 25 at the Davidson Center at USC.
