While the image of Christianity as a “Western religion” remains influential, the majority of self-identifying Christians today live in the Global South, outside of Europe or North America. This class explores the wide breadth of definitions, narratives, and systems associated with Christian identities around the globe, from Africa to Asia to Latin America. In doing so, we will investigate a set of major theoretical themes in the study of Global Christianity, such as personhood, modernity, globalization, and colonialism.
