About SSRS

  • Supported by the Henry Luce Foundation, the "Spatial Study of Religion and Society" project is co-sponsored by the Center on Religion and Chinese Society at Purdue University and the China Data Center at the University of Michigan. The project aims at promoting research, teaching, learning, and training on the spatial studies of religions and society in China. The project will develop a spatial information platform with spatial intelligence technology, which will enable a variety of data derived from different sources and formats to be incorporated into a singular system to create dynamic maps, and enable powerful geo-spatial analysis to yield new insights into religion and society in China by integrating social, economic, demographic, religious, and geographical information. It is expected that the project will enhance the scholarship on the subject and provide effective assistance in support of scholars’ research through 1) developing their research interactions and collaboration; 2) expanding their research projects with the information and tech support in view of their limited access and tech support from local institutions; 3) promoting interdisciplinary studies with the added value from the integration of those data from different sources and fields, and 4) providing a variety of teaching and training tools for their courses on the studies of Chinese religion and society.

    The project is directed by Dr. Z. George Hong (Professor of History at Purdue University Calumet and Co-Director of the Center on Religion and Chinese Society at Purdue University), Dr. Fenggang Yang (Professor of Sociology and Director of the Center on Religion and Chinese Society at Purdue University), and Dr. Shuming Bao (Senior Research Coordinator of the China Data Center at the University of Michigan). The project is also co-sponsored by Purdue University, the University of Michigan, Purdue University Calumet, Renmin University, East China Normal University, Wuhan University and some other institutions.All collaborations will be welcome.
