    Examining Social Complexity, Religion, and Prosociality in Southeast Asia and Beyond with the Seshat: Global History Databank

    Nanyang Technological University, Complexity Institute

    The primary objective of the workshop is to work with a small group of invited experts to examine the the topic of social complexity and the potential role of world religions in promoting prosocial behaviour by rulers and elites throughout the last four millennia, both globally and within the context of Southeast Asia.

    Key topics include prosociality, religion, cooperation, Southeast Asia, social complexity, structural equality, history, Buddhism and Confucianism.

    A public session will be held on Wednesday, August 17 from 9:00-14:20. More information here.
