Bio and grants
Weishan Huang is a Sociologist and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cultural and Religious Studies. She currently serves as the Director of Taiwan Research Center and the Program Director of the Master Program in Religious Studies. Her work mainly focuses on religious movements, migration and globalization, and urban gentrification in New York (Ecology of Learning Project, Lily Foundation 2006-2007) and Shanghai City (Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation 2013-2015; GRF 2015-2018). One of her joint research projects was to inquire as to how culture and economics intertwined in urban re-structuring before and after the 1990 recession in New York City. She is the co-editor of the book, Ecology of Faith in the New York City (Indiana University Press, 2013). Her current research at CRS is to propose a study of the reconfiguration of two significant state-planned social phenomena, urbanization and religious revival, and its impacts on Mahayana Buddhist communities in contemporary Shanghai.
