Anthony Reddie to head up  the Oxford Centre for Religion and Culture

 

A leading scholar in the field of Black Theology will be the new Director of the Oxford Centre for Religion and Culture at Regent’s Park College, Oxford

 
Anthony ReddieProfessor Anthony Reddie, currently Extraordinary Professor of Theological Ethics at the University of South Africa, takes up the role on 1 January 2020.
 
Professor Reddie is editor of Black Theology journal, the author of more than 70 essays and articles on Christian Education and Black Theology, and the author or editor of 18 books. He comes to the Director’s post after working as Europe Secretary for the Council for World Mission.
 
The College stated that after more than two decades, the Centre is 'preparing to move into a new phase with a relaunch this year', and the appointment of Professor Reddie ‘opens up new and exciting research possibilities’. 

As the Centre seeks to build on a strong tradition of interdisciplinary approaches to religion and culture, Professor Reddie will ‘initiate a new strand of work with his expertise in understanding the growth of religiously inspired nationalism across the world,’ the College continued.

Professor Reddie’s latest book – Theologizing Brexit: A Liberationist and Postcolonial Critique (Routledge, 2019) – will be the subject of a panel discussion at the 2020 conference of the Society for the Study of Theology, and is the first intercultural and postcolonial theological exploration of the Brexit phenomenon.  He is in demand as a conference speaker (booked for Greenbelt 2020) and is also a trustee of the ‘British and Irish Association for Practical Theology’.
 
Professor Reddie said, ‘I'm thrilled to be joining a vibrant and exciting college, as the new Director of the OCRC. I look forward to building on its current traditions and  sharing in the shaping of a dynamic future.’
