Workshop on Evangelicalism and Charismatic Christianity

Nov 11, 2014

The interdisciplinary workshop “Studying Contemporary Evangelicalism and Charismatic Christianity” took place at the Karl Jaspers Centre from November 7 to 9, 2014. The event was organised by the Junior Research Group B21 "Pentecostalism" in cooperation with the German Association for the Study of Religion (DVRW).

The workshop forms the inaugural meeting for the newly founded DVRW working group „Evangelical, Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements“, which intends to further academic exchange in this particular research field and bring together scholars with similar research foci from the field of religious studies and neighbouring disciplines.

The Workshop started on November 7 with the first part held in English comprising keynote lectures, workshop sessions and paper presentations. This part of the meeting was open to the interested academic public. The two invited international keynote speakers are proven experts in the field of evangelical, Pentecostal and charismatic Christianity. In their keynotes, James S. Bielo (Miami University, Oxford, OH) and Simon Coleman (University of Toronto, Canada) approached the topic in a twofold way – on the one hand addressing theoretical, methodological concerns and on the other discussing those concerns with reference to their specific research. In workshop sessions following the keynotes, the participants discussed the topics presented in more depth. In addition, members of the working Group presented current research projects in short paper sessions on Saturday 8, 2014.

The second part of the meeting on Sunday, November 9, 2014 was closed to the public and for members of the working group only; it was held in German. During this meeting, conceptual and directional aims of the workgroup as well as future meetings and projects were discussed.

The workshop was jointly organised by Dr. Katja Rakow, Esther Berg and Matthias Deininger of Junior Research Group B21 “Transcultural Dynamics of Pentecostalism” and the DVRW working group “Evangelical, Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements.”
