International Workshop "Muslim Minorities and Questions of Secularity in China and Beyond": Call for Papers

This interdisciplinary workshop investigates the role of secularity – that is, conceptual distinctions and institutional differentiations between “religion” and its others – in the formation and normalization of Muslim minorities, with a focus on China.

The workshop is organized and funded by the DFG Research Project “Negotiating Modern Sino-Muslim (Hui) Subjectivities, 1900-1960: Reforming Islam in China” at the Institute for the Study of Religions and the Centre for Advanced Studies “Multiple Secularities – Beyond the West, Beyond Modernities” at Leipzig University, and in collaboration with the Centre for the Study of Islamic Culture at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
We intend to publish selected papers in a special journal issue or an edited volume and are therefore interested in original contributions.
