Nikolas Broy - 百可思

Religious Studies / Chinese Studies

Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1199 "Processes of Spatialization under the Global Condition" at Leipzig University, where I also earned my PhD in the Study of Religions in 2014.

I have studied Religious Studies and Chinese Studies in Leipzig and worked at the universities of Leipzig and Göttingen, as well as in Hefei, Anhui Province (PRC).

My PhD research dealt with the religious practice of "Vegetarian Sects" in late imperial China and modern Taiwan. My present research will examine the proselytizing activities of the modern Chinese-Taiwanese religious movement Yiguandao ("The Way of Pervading Unity") in South Africa, Japan, and the United States. This research is part of the SFB project entitled "Migrating Buddhas and Global Confucianism: The Transnational Space Making of Taiwanese Religious Organizations" supervised by Philip Clart.
