Dr. Carolyn Chen

Scholar of Work, Silicon Valley, Religion, and Race

Berkeley, California, United States of America


My research focuses on work, religion, spirituality, and race in the United States. I've conducted research on tech work culture, religious congregations, and immigrant communities. I've published three books: *Work Pray Code: When Work Becomes Religion in Silicon Valley* (Princeton 2022), *Getting Saved in America: Taiwanese Immigration and Religious Experience* (Princeton 2008) and *Sustaining Faith Traditions: Religion, Race and Ethnicity among the Latino and Asian American Second Generation* (NYU 2012). My writing has appeared in popular publications such as the *New York Times*, *Los Angeles Times*, and *The Atlantic*. And my work has been featured in media outlets such as the National Public Radio and CNN. I am the Co-Director of the UC Berkeley Center for the Study of Religion, and Executive Director of the Asian Pacific American Religions Research Initiative (APARRI), a scholarly community committed to the advancement of public knowledge of Asian Pacific American religions.
