Stratégies pentecôtistes

Un appel à contribution est lancé par l’Université de Padoue pour un colloque sur Pentecostal Politics of Space and Power: a global Perspective, Université de Padoue, 7-8 juin 2012.

development in Christianity.

The conference brings scholars from Europe, Africa, Latin America, Asia and the U.S. together for a comparative analysis of the social, aesthetic and religious impact of Pentecostalism on global cities and societies. Plenary speakers include some of the leading thinkers in these areas. The conference organizers are especially interested in papers reporting empirical research on the following topics:

  • The power of communication: Pentecostalism, Leadership and New Media
