Workshop on Pentecostalism

28. Mär. 2014

An interdisciplinary workshop on Pentecostalism was organised by Junior Research Group B21 “Transcultural Dynamics of Pentecostalism”. The event took place at the Karl Jaspers Centre from April 3 to 5, 2014,

“Studying Pentecostalism in a Transcultural Perspective” is the title of the workshop exploring Pentecostalism’s adaptability, the resulting transcultural entanglements and its inner diversity. During lectures and discussions, participants on the one hand addressed theoretical and methodological concerns and on the other hand discussed those concerns with reference to specific case studies.

The workshop consisted of three parts: keynote lectures in the evenings; discussing relevant texts in the morning sessions and sessions in the afternoon with presentations from the participants to discuss their questions and giving advice for further research.

Cristina Rocha from the University of Western Sydney in Australia presented a keynote lecture titled “Researching Pentecostal Transnational Fields: The Case of Australia - Brazil Connections”. Michael Wilkinson from Trinity Western University in Canada gave a keynote speech titled “Global Spirit: Globalization Theory and the Study of Pentecostal Christianity”.

The workshop is organised by Junior Research Group B21 “Transcultural Dynamics of Pentecostalism: Pentecostal Christianity between Globalisation and Localised Spheres in Singapore and the Straits” coordinated by Dr. Katja Rakow.
