The Nagel Institute, with generous support from the Templeton Religion Trust, announces the selection of 16 winning proposals.
A six-member selection committee met in Accra, Ghana, in November, 2017 (Jehu Hanciles, John Azumah, Joel Carpenter, Esther Mombo, Tite Tienou, Ben Quarshie, and Katho Bungishabaku), and again in Nairobi, Kenya, in May, 2018.
16 winning proposals were selected from over 100 submissions. Each of these projects will produce multiple publications, host conferences and workshops, and develop new theological curriculum. The project leaders (PL) from these proposals will meet together for a developmental workshop in Pretoria, March 2019, and then again for the culminating conference in Abidjan, March 2020. Following this culminating conference, the PLs will produce and submit at least one scholarly article to The Nagel Institute for publications that will contain a collection of these documents.
Congratulations to these selected institutions and their project teams:
