Our four main research areas are:
- Migration churches (e.g., the East Asian diaspora churches in Germany).
- Bible translation (e.g. translation criticism of Chinese Bible translations)
- Cultural hermeneutics (e.g., points of connection of East Asian pop culture to the gospel)
- Sinotheological designs
In addition to research, the department seeks to network mission agencies, churches, and like-minded individuals who share the concern of “East Asia and East Asians.”
