Having taught social anthropology and education at various universities in Australia and Germany, I’m now teaching World Christianity and Religious Studies in the School of Divinity, and researching domestic violence in Christian contexts, travelling to eighteen countries across the world (including Tonga, Burma, Korea, Ghana, Germany, India, Trinidad, Scotland) as a case study of the perfectly normal cultural negotiating of religious texts, in this case people in seminaries and church groups.
The research involves talking individually or in groups with ordained and lay, male and female, ethnic minority and majority people from eleven Christian traditions covering Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Pentecostal, Episcopal and Reformed Protestant and AIC, enabled by many former and current Edinburgh post-graduates in the various countries.
