I am part of the IRTG Transformative Religion: Religion as Situated Knowledge in Social Transformation Processes
Under the title “Transformative Religion: Religion as Situated Knowledge in Social Transformation Processes”, the German-South African Research Training Group aims to contribute to research into the complex interrelationships between religion and society, in particular comparing countries of the Global North to those of the Global South. What influence does religion exert on social transformation processes? And by the same token, how do transformations in contemporary global societies affect religion? When carrying out case studies, the RTG examines religion as a type of specifically situated knowledge and look into the relationship between religion and social transformation.
