E-Workshop: Global Chinese Catholicism [8, 9, 10 December 2021]

This workshop explores the lived realities of Chinese Catholic communities established around the world as well as interactions among them and with Chinese Catholics in China. 


Taking urban hubs as a focal point, the project examines the intricate yet largely overlooked relationship between religious circulation and urban space, exploring how the entanglement between religious practices, urban development and urban social changes involves transnational circulations both of religious cultures and policy discourses. Cities such as Hong Kong (Ho and Maarif), Guangzhou (Frankel) and Dubai (Wang), with their historical legacy and/or future-looking ambitions, continue to serve as strategic hubs that reinforce transnational religious exchange.
