International Symposium on “Spirituality, Culture, and Chinese Societies: Interdisciplinary and Interfaith Dialogues”

Organized by Divinity School of Chung Chi College, Chinese University of Hong Kong

Recent years have seen surging academic and public interest in Spirituality, with research highlighting its relevance to society’s transformation in both the West and Chinese cultures. However, what Spirituality means remains ambiguous. To celebrate the 60th anniversaries of both the University and the Divinity School, this symposium fosters interfaith and interdisciplinary dialogues on Spirituality’s meanings and roles. By engaging diverse scholars, we hope to inspire nuanced investigation while promoting open discussion across Western and Chinese communities, aligning with the University’s spirit.
