COSPONSORED SESSION: African Religions Unit and Teaching Religions Unit

Call for Proposals

Teaching Religions in Africa
Teaching African religions – in all their diversity – brings its own challenges to the classroom. These challenges relate to the longstanding problem of othering and the history of (mis)representation of African societies and cultures, including their religious beliefs and practices, in the West; the contemporary politicisation of African religious traditions and identities both within Africa and beyond; the intricacies relating to power and positionality in knowledge production, and the limitations of academic categories, concepts and methodologies. This co-sponsored section will feature reflections on, and demonstrations of innovative pedagogical approaches, curriculum design, teaching practices, and textbook resources.
