Christianity in contemporary China
MERCREDI 2 DÉCEMBRE 2020 | 18h
Un webinaire en anglais (sur inscription), proposé par la Faculté de théologie de l'Université de Genève, ouvert aux étudiants et au public.
Many people in the West are often not familiar with the realities of Christianity in China today. In this discussion with Easten Law, a scholar who specializes in this field, we will shed light on some of the many faces of Christianity in contemporary China and explore their implications for sociopolitical, ecumenical, and inter-religious relations.
Easten Law, Dr. @Georgetown University
Christophe Chalamet, Dr. @University of Geneva
Easten Law is a scholar whose research focuses on religious pluralism, public theology, and civil society in the context of contemporary China. He recently received his PhD from Georgetown University. In his dissertation he examined how Chinese Christian identity is negotiated and expressed in everyday life. He intends to use this data to inform an interreligious public theology for the Chinese context.
Previously, he has taught intercultural relations at American University’s School of International Service in Washington, D.C., and Anhui Normal University in Wuhu, Anhui Province, China.
