Contribution to Book
Gender, Religion, Conflict & Peacebuilding
Displacing the State: Religion and Conflict in Neoliberal Africa (2011)
  • Isabel Mukonyora, Western Kentucky University
Flyer reads: "Seldom have recent studies of African culture and politics directly treated ‘religion and conflict’ as such; Displacing the State remedies that omission. The authors collectively explore the ways religions and religious movements employ media, gender roles, social organizations, and translocal cultural values to challenge, reform, and otherwise shape political culture and social structures. Their insightful contributions are sure to push the ongoing scholarly debate on the complex relationships among ethnicity, religion, governance, and conflict in Africa."
