“中国基督教空间信息研究合作平台”正式启动

Luce Grant on "Spatial Information Network"

发布时间: 2012-01-19

The China Data Center at the University of Michigan and the Center on Religion and Chinese Society at Purdue University are pleased to announce the project of “Establishing a Spatial Information Network for the Study of Christianity in China” supported by Henry Luce Foundation. The project aims at promoting research, teaching, learning, and training on the studies of Chinese Christianity. 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 Christianity 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.

The project is directed by Professor Z. George Hong of Purdue University Calumet, Professor Fenggang Yang of Purdue University, and Dr. Shuming Bao of 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.
