The Chinese Cultural Revolution and Its Effects on Religion in China

My signature experience included me traveling to China with Peddie to immerse myself in the culture and history as well as taking courses in Chinese history and Asian religions. These experiences helped me develop an interest in the Chinese cultural revolution, which then became the focus of my Asian studies project. My Asian studies project examines the cultural revolution and its effects on religion in China. I explore the antireligious movement’s effects on religion in modern-day China.

This experience was very meaningful to me because it gave me an opportunity to delve deeper into the material I learned in history class and connect this to my experiences in China. Taylor Knox ’21
