Years of Stay at HYI

Sep 2011 to Jun 2013

Liu Jingyu graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with her MPhil degree in Chinese Studies in July 2011 and currently is a first-year student in the Regional Studies-East Asia program. Her research interests are Chinese popular religion and Daoism during the Song-Yuan-Ming transition. She introduced in her master thesis a Daoist warrior god called Wen Qiong who was usually worshipped and invoked as Marshal Wen during rituals. Through hagiographic studies, she pointed out that Marshal Wen, who was heavily imbedded with the Daoist weltanschauung, was part of the negotiation for a rapprochement between local religion and Daoism.
