Oliver joined by Kaitlyn Ugoretz, anthropologist of religion and a PhD candidate in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultural Studies at UC Santa Barbara, to discuss the global appeal of Shinto in the digital era. Kaitlyn introduces us to online Shinto communities as old as the internet itself, as well as the many international faces of Shinto, from official shrines in the USA to localised rituals and Marie Kondo’s brand of spiritualism.
Read Kaitlyn’s article, “The untidiness of Marie Kondo’s eclectic spirituality”.
Check out Kaitlyn’s YouTube channel, “Eat Pray Anime“.
