SMU Associate Professor of Humanities Orlando Woods has been awarded a Ministry of Education Academic Research Fund Tier 2 grant to better understand new types of socio-cultural diversity in Singapore. The co-principal investigator on the grant is SMU President Professor Lily Kong. The project titled ‘New Religious Pluralisms in Singapore: Migration, Integration and Difference’ will look at how religion intersects with new categories of difference – such as class – as well as new forms of difference within pre-existing social groups. It aims to identify the extent to which new religious pluralisms exist in Singapore, how they manifest across different religious groups, and the strategies deployed by different religious groups to manage them.
