World Christianity and the Reorganization of Disciplines: On the Emerging Dialogue Between Anthropology and Theology

Today, 23rd November 2016 an interesting lecture will take place at SOAS, Faber Building, 23/24 Russel Square (London), Room FG 01, at 7-9 pm.
This lecture considers the recent rise of both the category of “world Christianity” and the anthropology of Christianity and asks how together they may have created the conditions in which a new dialogue between anthropology and theology can develop.


Joel Robbins is Sigrid Rausing Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. He has long been involved in the development of the anthropology of Christianity, and he also has interests in the anthropology of ethics, values, and cultural change. He is the author of the book Becoming Sinners: Christianity and Moral Torment in a Papua New Guinea Society and was for many years co-editor of the journal Anthropological Theory.
Organiser: Dr Jörg Haustein joerg.haustein@soas.ac.uk
