FÄLLT AUS - Gender and Religion in the Republican Period

(Prof. Elena Valussi - Loyola University Chicago)

In this talk, Prof. Valussi addresses the question of gender and religion in the Republican period (1912-1949) in China through the analysis of printed journals and newspapers. While scholars have identified and described a dichotomy between religion and superstition emerging in the early twentieth century, she tries to understand the place of women (and gender) in this description, the strong association of women with superstitious behaviors, and at the same time the centrality of gender in the quest for the modernization of religious traditions.
