Yucheng Bai, of Religious Studies and Divinity School

I am a doctoral student in Religion, World Christianity track. My research focuses on modern Chinese church history, American church history, and the international connection between the churches in these two countries. 

Common topics in my works include: church-state relations in China and the US; Christianity and nationalism; the global dissemination of Christian fundamentalism; and history of Asian-American church in the US.
