The Faculty of Theology is working to
establish multidisciplinary research partnerships and colleagues from
universities in the Western Cape (Stellenbosch, Cape Town, and Western Cape) and
five universities elsewhere in Africa (Botswana, Kenyatta, Makerere, Nairobi
and Namibia) will take part in the consultation.
Prof Bagele Chilisa from the University
of Botswana will present the keynote address on “Indigenous Research Methods:
Conducting Research in Africa Contexts”, followed by discussions on:
“Working Smarter: Use of Technology in Research and Tuition”
“Inter- and Multidisciplinary Approaches to the Study of Theology and Religion”
“Identifying Common Interests and Priorities in the Study of Theology and
Religion in Africa”
In an attempt to promote the regional
offering in terms of research in the field of Religion and Theology, an internet
portal were created for improved communication amongst Religion and Theology
researchers and will be launched during the consultation. The desirability and
sustainability of an umbrella organisation for the stimulation and coordination
of the study of Religion and Theology in Africa will also be discussed.
