Research Programme on Religious Communities and Sustainable Development

Juliane Stork

John S. Mbiti Research Fellow

The Research Programme on Religious Communities and Sustainable Development has established the "John S. Mbiti Research Fellowship" in honour of one of the most influential scholars of African religion and philosophy who passed in October 2019.

Mbiti’s claim that “Africans are notoriously religious, and each people has its own religious system with a set of beliefs and practices.” keeps on inspiring researchers around the globe to explore African Religions and Philosophy and his ground-breaking book “African Religions and Philosophy”, first published in 1968, shapes academia to this day. Mbiti’s anticolonial critique of research approaches on African Religions and his vivid and accessible descriptions set the standards to measure anyone’s writing about Religion in Africa.

The John S. Mbiti Research Fellowship is awarded to outstanding young scholars with highly promising research projects on religion in Africa.

 

Juliane Stork (born 1991 in Berlin) is the John S. Mbiti Research Fellow at the Research Programme for Religious Communities and Sustainable Development. She pursues a PhD on "The Production of Theology in African Independent Christianity - the Case of Ecology in the Zion Christian Church in South Africa".
