Contemporary Religious Revitalizations

Fall, 2009Download Poster PDF

Africa has witnessed rapid religious recomposition in recent decades marked by new scales of religious organization, new directional flows of influence, assertive new theologies, and intensified public presences. The realities have inspired the Council to develop a thematic interest in Religion, especially as it relates to longer histories of interaction between Christian, Islamic and “traditional” fields of influence. This series brings together leading scholars across the country to speak to the renewed and growing interest in religion in Africa and features a critically engaged set of conversations in the further development of a field in tremendous flux.
