Ubication: A Phenomenological Study About Making Spaces Sacred, Lauren F. Pfister Aug 2017

Ubication: A Phenomenological Study About Making Spaces Sacred, Lauren F. Pfister

HKBU Staff Publication

Within this paper a phenomenological method for describing sacred spaces/places is justified, characterized and illustrated. Recognizing that particular places within secularized and post-secular cultural contexts may lose and regain their religious status, I have referred to the process and this phenomenological method of “making spaced sacred” by means of the neologism in English, “ubication”. The presentation of this approach occurs here in seven sections. First of all, some basic interpretive questions about why and how humans recognize sacred spaces are addressed in reference to key words by Mircea Eliade (1907–1986) and the more recent anthropological work of Leslie ...


Christian Activism And Political Participation In Hong Kong’S Occupy Movement, Shun-Hing Chan Jun 2017

Christian Activism And Political Participation In Hong Kong’S Occupy Movement, Shun-Hing Chan

HKBU Staff Publication

This article examines the role of Christian activism in facilitating political participation in the Occupy Movement from March 2013 to September 2014. Using Doug McAdam, John McCarthy, and Mayer Zald’s integrated model of social movement theory, this article argues that the political opportunity for constitutional reform, the framing of civil disobedience for the Occupy Central with Love and Peace Movement, and the social mobilization efforts generated by two organizing committees of the movement, together with the support of a number of formal and informal Christian groups, partially accounted for Christians’ political participation and the emergence of collective action. The ...

In ancient China, war was a major concern of all politico-philosophical schools, particularly during the Warring States Period (475-221 BCE). In pre-Qin (pre-221 BCE) philosophical writings of different schools traditionally known as “Masters literature,” we find numerous discussions related to warfare and its ethico-political implications, ranging from Laozi (or Lao Tzu, c. sixth century BCE) of the Daoist School (Daojia), Mozi (c. 468-376 BCE) of the Mohist School (Mojia), Confucius (or Kongzi, 551-479 BCE), Mencius (or Mengzi, c. 372-289 BCE), and Xunzi (or Hsün-tzu, c. 325-238 BCE) of the Confucian School (Rujia), to Hanfeizi (c. 280-233 BCE) of the Legalist ...

The levels of civic engagement in terms of social services and civic activism in the Catholic churches of Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei, and Shanghai are very different. While the former three churches have a higher level of social services, Shanghai does not. Hong Kong has a higher level of civic activism than the other three dioceses. This paper explains the similarities and differences among these cities by using an analytical model of political, cultural, and individual opportunity structures. Our findings and analysis are derived from a collaborative research project on the Catholic Church’s civic engagement in the four cities ...
