Dr. Stefania Travagnin has published a new book: Religion and Media in China - Insights and Case Studies from the Mainland, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

The book focuses on the intersection of religion and media in China, bringing interdisciplinary approaches to bear on the role of religion in the lives of individuals and greater shifts within Chinese society in an increasingly media-saturated environment. With case studies focusing on Mainland China (including Tibet), Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as diasporic Chinese communities outside Asia, contributors consider topics including the historical and ideological roots of media representations of religion, expressions of religious faith online and in social media, state intervention (through both censorship and propaganda), religious institutions’ and communities’ use of various forms of media, and the role of the media in relations between online/offline and local/diaspora communities. Chapters engage with the major religious traditions practiced in contemporary China, namely Buddhism, Daoism, Confucianism, Christianity, Islam, and new religious movements. (Routledge)

Dr. Stefania Travagnin is Rosalind Franklin Fellow and Assistant Professor of Religion in Asia. She is also Director of the Centre for the Study of Religion and Culture in Asia and a Member of the Editorial Board of the 'Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society China' and of the the Advisory Editorial Board of 'Relegere: Studies in Religion and Reception'. Stefania researches different forms and levels of engagement between religion - especially Buddhism - and modernity in the Chinese context(s).
