Big Data and Religious Ethics


The accumulation and analysis of big data is touted as harboring immense new economic, political, and medical power. We invite papers exploring the potential use and ethical significance of big data for religious traditions. We are particularly interested in proposals that examine whether religious ethical traditions have sufficient resources to assess the collection, interpretation, and use of big or require fundamental conceptual and theological innovation to do so.
