The Spirit of Dis/continuity: Pentecostalism in a South African Township'
- Wednesday 8 February 2017 (16:30-18:30)
Speaker: Allan H Anderson (University of Birmingham)
Part of the Africa Talks Seminar Series Spring 2017.
Talks are held in the Danford Room, 2nd floor, Arts Building (R16 on the campus map).
Pentecostal Christianity has grown rapidly in South Africa as it has throughout the sub-Sahara. This talk, based on fieldwork in Soshanguve in the Tshwane Metropolitan Region for over two decades, explores the relationship between Pentecostalism and other forms of African popular religion, and asks whether this is a continuous or discontinuous one.
