Global East Religiosity

Building upon the past projects of this center, this three-year project “Global East Religiosity and Changing Landscapes” has three components: (1) we will carry out surveys in East Asian societies using our pre-tested survey questionnaire developed during the planning grant period, which includes many new questions specially designed to capture religiosity in East Asian cultural traditions, (2) we will map religious sites in East Asian societies and East Asian diasporic communities, and (3) we will conduct historical studies of Protestant and Catholic Christianities in East Asia in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Meanwhile, we will offer research and writing workshops for young scholars of East Asian religion .
