Project Description

I am currently completing my book manuscript entitled Letters from Manchuria: Faith, Gender, and Christianity in Northeast China, 1840 – 1900. In the meanwhile, I am also working on one journal article, “God’s Little Daughters: Chinese Christian Virgins in northeast China”, and one conference paper, “Christianity in Northeast China: A Reflection on Recent Shift of Paradigms in Social, Cultural, and Religious History” (in Chinese). Fieldwork is scheduled in this May to complete the research project: “Religion, History and Local Society: Christian Relics and Ancient Christian Communities in Shanxi Province”.
