My name is Martina Prosén and I'm a doctorate student in Global Christianity and Interreligious Relations (formerly Mission Studies with ecumenics) since 2012. I am part of the research project ”Looking for wholeness in an en-chanted world: Healing, Prosperity and Ritual action in African Charismatic/Pentecostal Churches”.
My research focuses on worship as a ritual phenomena in two charismatic churches in Kenya. Through an ethnographic method I investigate how worship shapes spirituality and theology among African Pentecostals. I also teach at the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies in Lund as well as lecture and publish in other contexts, most notably in The Routledge Companion to Christianity in Africa.
Academically I have two degrees: Master of Arts in Religious Studies and Master of Theology, both from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. I have many years of experience from living in Africa, as well as from bible-teaching in Sweden and abroad.
