Hybrid of In-Class and Travel Experiences that reflect emerging trends in African Christianities and religions.
The course's Interdisciplinary Approach is intended to examine the inter-relatedness and the offshoots of Bible and Urbanization in Historic and Contemporary Sub-Saharan Africa. The course specifically explores the intersections of culture, politics, nationality, ethnicity/race, class, and travel in attempt to understand and fully engage some historical and emerging trends in religious identity and expression in relation to rapidly changing socio-economic and ethno- national identities. What is the role of the bible, if any, in historic urbanization? and what is the relationship between the emphasis on Transcendental experience in some mainline, Pentecostal, and charismatic Christianities in Africa, and Increasing Urbanization and transnational immigration on the continent from east to west? As Thomas Csordas puts it, "Is the Trans, of Trans-nationalism the same as the "Trans" of Transcendence.
The course (in content and design) is intended to afford students opportunities to:
- Explore the historical trends and contemporary relations between urbanization in Africa and Biblical Interpretation
- Participate in some of the new mode of biblical interpretation (Contextual Bible Studies) currently taking place across the continent
- Explore how Urbanization impacts the shifting of international Christianities and the new wave of immigrants and immigrant congregations to the west
- Begin to develop critical and constructive tools for effective urban ministries.
