Research 

Jens Reinke's research explores the emergence of modern and contemporary ethnic Chinese Buddhist religiosities from a spatial perspective. Applying an ethnographic as well as a historical lens allows him to identify the global entanglements of modern and contemporary Buddhism, but also shows how dynamics that span multiple localities are shaped by specific national and regional histories. Jens Reinke's research thereby adds to the study of religion in the global sinosphere, while also contributing to a broader understanding of how religious border-crossings and transnational mobilities shape the conditions of religions in the era of global modernity.
