DASA researchers have led and participated in large collaborative research projects that explore religious practices in Africa and its diasporic communities, with a special focus on Muslim-Christian relations in everyday life.
These projects have utilised innovative and interdisciplinary research methods, including a combination of a large-N ethnographic survey and computer-led corpus linguistics to shed new light of religious pluralism in intimate, domestic and local contexts.
