Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter

Abstract

Religious diversity is important as an academic concept as well as a socialphenomenon. An emerging body of literature has been devoted to analysingreligious diversity in China. Not enough attention, however, has been paid to the ways in which the very concept of ‘religious diversity’ is received and applied by Chinese scholars in contemporary China. This chapter bridges that gap by questioning how the concept of ‘religious diversity’ is used in dissertations that have been successfully defended in Chinese universities in recent years.
