The idea behind these will be to develop the group’s comparative framework for the study of gender and Pentecostalism in Africa and Melanesia. These seminars will be based on specific readings from the gender/Pentecostalism field which the group can critically analyze and debate. One person will chair each seminar, briefly providing an overview of the topic and summary of the readings, followed by discussion. All interested members of staff are welcome to attend.
