In this issue you will find two individual studies covering the subjects of urbanization and Chinese religion as well as dreaming and the African diaspora. One article contains an ethnography of Buddhists practice groups in Wuton village. It aims to discuss the relationship between two intertwined forms of soft power employed by the Chinese regime: The push for cultural consumption and the PRC’s re-definition of Buddhism as a culture instead of a religion. The other contribution explores diasporic experiences and reflections on religious conversion through analyzing, visitational, predictive, and inspirational dreams from Kabyle immigrant converts in France.
In our miscellaneous section you will be able to have a closer look at the experiences and learnings from the Käte Hamburger Kolleg (KHK) as a funding format.
