Elias Bongmba | Eschatology and Otherness: Imagining and Anticipating the Future in Africa

May 13, 2019

In this episode we once again return to past honorary doctors at the HT-faculty at Lund University. Professor Elias Bongmba gave a open lecture during the spring of 2018, with the title "Eschatology and Otherness: Imagining and Anticipating the Future in Africa".

Professor Elias Kifon Bongmba is a theology, religious studies and African studies scholar who works at Rice University in Houston, Texas. His research and teaching covers broad areas and combines theology, religious studies, philosophy and ethnology. His books include philosophical, theological and social analysis of African witchcraft, and discuss public theology as well as the HIVAIDS pandemic in Africa. He is currently working on an extensive introduction to the three major groups of religious tradition in Africa: traditional African religions, Islam and Christianity.
