God, Christianity, and Colonization in Senegal, West Africa March 31, 2019, Dr. Aliou Niang
March 31 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 pm EDT
On Sunday, March 31, 2019, Dr. Aliou Niang from Union Theological Seminary presented “God, Christianity, and Colonization in Senegal, West Africa.” This lecture is a historical primer on Christianity and colonization in Senegal, West Africa, emphasizing the relationship between colonization and Christianity. Dr. Niang’s first book (Faith and Freedom in Galatia and Senegal: The Apostle Paul, Colonists and Sending Gods, Brill, 2009) compares the colonial objectification of his people by French colonists to the Greco-Roman Colonial objectifications of the ancient Celts/Gauls/Galatians, and explores Paul’s role in bringing about a different portrayal. His teaching and research explore themes and issues in Biblical and Postcolonial Theologies.
