Chinese Christians’ Networks in Germany (2009 – 2010) (completed)
The project Chinese Christians’ Networks in Germany explored how existing and emerging Chinese Christian communities in Germany participated in the dynamics of a world–wide system of networks related to Christianity in general and Chinese Christianity in particular. The project maps, located and investigated Chinese Christian communities in Germany, examined the dynamics of missionary involvement and systems of networks. The project analyzed the socio-political, cultural and religious components of those networks. The project simultaneously operated on two levels: on the level of empirical research, done through qualitative research, and on a theoretical level of conceptualizing topic-related and applied terminology.
