Institution: University of Dayton

Position: Graduate Assistant and Ph.D. Student

I am a Chinese immigrant, wife, mother, and a Ph.D. student interested in the Chinese religious traditions. I have designed and taught an undergraduate course titled “Zen, Tao, and Confucianism: a Textual and Artistic Experience with the Chinese Tradition” at the University of Dayton. Part of the inspiration for that course is the inter-religious dialogue which took place between the Chinese scholar John C. H. Wu and the American monk Thomas Merton. I am also working towards a dissertation on Wu’s theological contribution to the civilizational dialogue between China and the West.
