Here is an interview from the sidelines of the 2016 Yale-Edinburgh Conference on World Christianity. Kyama Mugambi had a conversation with Prof Lamin Sanneh about the conference and the significance of World Christianity Studies. We also include in this video Prof Sanneh’s comments about how his book “Translating the Message” came about.
Here are some sights and sounds Kyama shared from Edinburgh, along with a brief introduction to the Yale Edinburgh conference, a word about the historic venue and a hint at what’s coming up on the blog soon.
World Christianity Conference in Edinburgh: CWC-AIU will be sending a delegation to the Yale-Edinburgh Group on the History of the Missionary Movement and World Christianity. The group will gather in June at the New College University of Edinburgh to talk about Responses to Missions: Appropriations, Revisions, and Rejections. This annual conference brings together leading scholars in Missions and World Christianity to deliberate and share their research on emerging themes in the disciplines. Among those chairing the plenary sessions will be Prof Lamin Saneh, Prof Andrew Walls, Prof Brian Stanley, and Prof Paul Foster. CWC-AIU will be represented by the Prof Mark Shaw, and members of the current PhD cohort.
Mini-Colloquium: The CWC PhD cohort members, Heglon Kitawi and Kyama Mugambi met on May 26th 2016 to discuss progress on their research projects. Also present at that meeting was Miriam Njoroge, a PhD candidate at the UoN department of religion.
The CWC is pleased to announce that it is accepting a new cohort into its PhD in World Christianity in August 2016. A limited number of spaces remain.
This programme is designed for individuals with strong academic gifts who feel called to a ministry of teaching and writing in christian history and are interested in researching new movements of contemporary christianity in Africa and around the world.
