Missionary and Indigenous-Christian Journals and the Making of Transcontinental Christian Networks

The Andrew Walls Centre for the Study of African and Asian Christianity at Liverpool Hope University in England and The Chair for Early and Global Church History at Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich in Germany are pleased to announce a joint international conference on Missionary and Indigenous-Christian Journals and the Making of Transcontinental Christian Networks.

The organizers of this conference invite paper proposals on the contributions of missionary journals to any theme related to intercultural learning, cross-cultural networks of Christians, printing, selling, and reading habits, Christian ecumenism, interreligious understanding, international diplomacy, freedom movements, women liberation, developmental works to reduce poverty or to promote health, and academic disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, linguistics, and translation studies. The proposals should say how the missionary journals have or have not established transcontinental channels of communication in diverse fields. This conference will also provide opportunities for researchers to present the result of their case studies such as the Munich Research Group’s study on indigenous journals by Asian and African Christian leaders and their contributions to trans-regional and trans-continental networking. Proposals in this regard are also welcome.

When: Friday, July 3 to Sunday, July 5, 2015
Where: Hope Park Campus, Liverpool Hope University, Liverpool L16 9JD.
