Gastvortrag Prof. Dr. Schmidt

Study of Religion invites you to the following guest lecture:  

„African-derived Religions as Sites of Memory: A Critique against Syncretism“ 

African-derived religions have been long described as prime example of syncretic religions. However, syncretism is a highly contested term because the notion of ‘pure roots’ within syncretic constructs led to misinterpretation of religions created during the colonial times. Based on African-derived religions the lecture will show that we should say goodbye to ‘syncretism’ and instead embrace the creativity of the religions as sites of memory.
