Faculty of Divinity


World Christianities Research Seminar

This seminar responds to a recent upsurge of scholarly interest in the study of Christianity as a global phenomenon. It marks the emergence of World Christianities as a dedicated stream of research and study at undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral level in the Faculty of Divinity. Meetings will feature a wide range of interdisciplinary scholars, both from within Cambridge and further afield, focusing on cutting-edge topics and debates in the area of World Christianities, including Christianity and diaspora, transnational religiosity, the history of missionary organisations and issues of language, translation and religious print cultures.

Speakers are invited to share their current research or to engage with a theme selected by the three conveners for its contemporary or historical significance, as well as its potential for stimulating vigorous debate.

The seminar is a collaboration between the Faculty of Divinity and the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide.
