Centre for Chinese Studies
The Centre for Chinese Studies is a leading interdisciplinary teaching and research unit at the University of Manchester that provides a home for research into diverse aspects of Asia/China: from politics and societal development, to science and technology, economy, history, religions and arts.
We believe that in-depth knowledge of Chinese language and culture is crucial to a real understanding of China. Graduates can achieve competence in Chinese history, international politics and economic developments for strong career prospects in business and academia.
Call for Papers—The Glocalisation of Christianity in China
An international conference organised by The Centre for Chinese Studies and The Department of Religions and Theology, The University of Manchester
To be held at Manchester 15-16 May 2014
- Is there a pattern in the introduction and indigenisation of Christianity in China in the past one thousand four hundred years?
- Who are the old and new Christians that have emerged and what can they tell us about history, Mao and post-Mao China?
- Is the post-Mao emergence of Christianity true indigenisation, because it is not missionary-imposed but home grown and self-driven?
- What is the significance of the transition from “Christianity in China” to “Chinese Christianity”?
Inquiries and abstracts of no more than 200 words, plus 5 lines of biographical information, should be sent to Rebecca Frost at email@example.com before 5 January 2014. Those accepted to present at the conference will be notified by 31 January 2014.
