You are invited to an INTERACTIVE RESEARCH OPEN DAY with the Department of Religion Studies at the University of Johannesburg

It has the potential of shaping a more just and diverse future. The ethnographic and textual research conducted in the Department of Religion Studies at UJ by staff and postgraduate students alike explores living faiths in their social and political contexts, focusing on Christianity and Islam in (South) Africa.
