Agnes Heller will be the latest guest in our CSD Encounters series.

10 May 2012

Gerda Wielander has recently been awarded an AHRC Fellowship to complete her book on the social and political influence of Christian values in contemporary China.

It will be the first book that brings together studies of Christianity in contemporary China and studies of the development of China's political ideology. It argues that while we tend to think of China as an atheist, secular state, it is in fact vital to understand the importance religion plays in the state's response to emerging new values in society without giving ground in terms of a more democratic system.
