  • Congratulations to PD Dr. Ugo Dessì for the publication of his co-edited (alongside Christoph Kleine) volume Secularities in Japan (Brill 2022). This volume brings together contributions that, from different disciplinary perspectives, highlight certain aspects and problems related to the configuration of the relationship between the religious and the secular in Japan.
  • We cordially welcome Dr. Lulie El-Ashry as a Senior Research Fellow. While at the Department, Dr. El-Ashry will carry out a postdoctoral project on "Religious Conversions and Cultural Convergences: Stories of Travels and Transformations."
