ABOUT ME

Dr Jeremy Jammes is currently Associate Professor at the research Institute of Asian Studies (Brunei), and co-editor of the Book Series 'Asia in Transition'. Between 2010 and 2014, he worked as Deputy Director and Head of Publication of the Research Institute on Contemporary Southeast Asia (IRASEC), an overseas cluster of the French National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS). In 2006 he completed his Ph.D. in Social Anthropology in Paris-Nanterre University (France) and defended his dissertation on Caodaism, a Chinese-Vietnamese religious movement.
After a series of intensive fieldwork stints and extensive publications on this topic, he subsequently decided to broaden his research topics to closely examine interrelated proselytizing and conversion phenomenon (to Buddhism, Christianity) in Asia and Southeast Asia.
The results of such research (a special issue published; a book, journal articles in process) offered scope for comparisons between Asian lands of evangelization, enlightening an intra-Asian circulation of missionaries (from Hong Kong and South Korea to Southeast Asia), and providing an acute understanding of the strategies developed by the Christian actors.
