African Traditions in the Study of Religion, Diaspora and Gendered Societies

African Traditions in the Study of Religion, Diaspora and Gendered Societies By Afe Adogame, Ezra Chitando, Bolaji Bateye
2013 | 212 Pages | ISBN: 140944614X | PDF | 1 MB

The historiography of African religions and religions in Africa presents a remarkable shift from the study of 'Africa as Object' to 'Africa as Subject', thus translating the subject from obscurity into the global community of the academic study of religion. This book presents a unique multidisciplinary exploration of African Traditions in the Study of Religion, Diaspora, and Gendered Societies. The book is structured under two main sections. The first provides new insights into the interface between Religion and Society, Religion in Society. The African Diaspora, and the categories of Youth and Gender have not featured prominently in studies on religion in Africa, the second section reflect this reality by focusing on Diaspora, Youth and Gender Dynamics. Contributors drawn from diverse African and global contexts situate current scholarly traditions of the study of African religions within the purview of academic encounter and exchanges with non-African scholars and non-African contexts. African scholars enrich the study of religions from their respective academic and methodological orientations. Jacob Kehinde Olupona stands out as a pioneer in the socio-scientific interpretation of African indigenous religion and religions in Africa and the new African Diaspora. This book is to his honour and marks his immense contribution to an emerging field of study and research.
