Dr Zink completed his dissertation in the Faculty of Divinity in 2015 under the supervision of Professor David Maxwell, who himself won the Audrey Richards Prize in 1996. The dissertation is a study of the grassroots Christian movement that emerged among the Dinka people of southern Sudan during civil war in the 1980s and 1990s. It is based on Dr. Zink’s fieldwork, interviews, and archival research in South Sudan.
Dr Zink is now the director of the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide, a research and teaching centre in Cambridge that is part of the Cambridge Theological Federation. He is an affiliated lecturer in the Faculty where he contributes to undergraduate and graduate teaching on world Christianity.
