Date: March 20th-21st, 2018

Venue: Peking University

Organizers: Max Weber Foundation / China Branch Office and the Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences at Peking University

Max Weber himself has dealt with China in his study on “Confucianism and Taoism” (1915/1920).

Call for papers: Kolleg-Forschergruppe (KFG) „Multiple Secularities – Beyond the West, Beyond Modernities“

Secularities: Patterns of Distinction, Paths of Differentiation
