"Chinese Religions in the Age of Massive Urbanization"

Workshops, conferences 2018
China has undergone rapid urbanization since the policy of opening up to reforms. By the end of 2015, 56% of the total population lived in urban areas. If urbanization continues to progress as the Chinese government plans, by 2025, 70% of Chinese citizen will live in cities. Urbanization has tremendous impact not only on the environment but also on people and their cultural fabric in everyday life. State-led urbanization on such a scale also further blurs the boundaries between cities and villages as they are more closely embedded in each other, with more and more people living in both cities and villages.

"Ageing across Borders: Care, Generations, Citizenship"

Workshops, conferences 2018
As the world’s population grows older, how do people experience ageing in global, mobile and transnational contexts? This workshop hosted by the ‘Ageing in a Time of Mobility’ research group at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity aims to shed light on how ageing and migration intersect to jointly shape new social and cultural transformations. Moving beyond looking at ‘older age’ and ‘ageing’ in isolation, the workshop will explore how care and intergenerational relationships are newly configured in transnational contexts; how new forms and practices of citizenship, community and belonging emerge on different scales; but also how borders and boundaries continue to shape or constrain experiences of mobility in later life in unequal ways.
