Recent Scholarship Discussion

Once a quarter, the workshop will read and discuss a recent article related to Global Christianities so that we have a sense of what’s going on in the wider scholarly community.

This week we will be discussing an article by Joel Robbins on the Anthropology of Christianity. It is the introduction to a supplemental issue of the journal Current Anthropology that was dedicated to the theme of the Anthropology of Christianity. Email contact-global-christianities@lists.uchicago.edu to receive a copy of the article in advance. Please think about how the themes addressed in the article relate to your own work and come with a question that you would like to discuss with the group.

Joel Robbins, “The Anthropology of Christianity: Unity, Diversity, New Directions: An Introduction to Supplement 10,” Current Anthropology, Vol. 55, No. S10, The Anthropology of Christianity: Unity, Diversity, New Directions (December 2014), pp. S157-S171

Feel free to bring your own lunch. We will have bread, peanut butter, and jelly, though, so nobody will go hungry!
