Department of Chinese Studies 中文系

Chinese Religions Research Group

Introduction

The Chinese Religions Research Group aims to promote academic research and activities on Chinese religions, including Buddhism, Daoism, popular religion, and sectarian religions from antiquity to contemporary times. We welcome faculty members and graduate students from the Department of Chinese Studies or NUS community, who conduct research or share our interest on Chinese religions to join us. With its emphasis on Chinese religions, the group will facilitate academic discussions that deal with religious literature, history, and philosophy.

In principle, members of the group will meet once a month. Activities include:

  1. Presentations by faculty members and graduate students on their current research and findings
  2. Talks by visiting scholars
  3. Seminars and international conferences
