Research overview

My research develops a localised perspective of the growth and expansion of Global Christianity. From anthropological and sociological perspectives I accentuate the heterogeneity and plurality of lived Christian experience in different contexts, thus bringing to focus the interface between culture, worldview and belief. I am also increasingly interested in the impact of globalisation and migration on religious belonging and the resulting changes on contemporary Christianity. Within the broad academic research on the hybridisation of religion, I particularly work on Christianity, with special interest in the social and political implications of Christian growth particularly in Asia and Africa.
