Abstract

With reference to the growing body of literature on worldings (e.g. world literature, world history, world philosophy), the present chapter argues that in order to develop ‘World Christianity’ into a methodological approach, a thorough consideration of the broader intellectual discourses that emphasize a world-mindedness is needed. Therefore, the present chapter will first provide a general overview of the usage of ‘world’ as a modifier in broader intellectual discourses (at this time remaining in the realm of Humanities), and then it will engage in dialogue with conceptualizations of the concept of ‘world’ in world literature, world philosophy, and world history. At last the chapter discusses the relevance of such intellectual dialogues on ‘worlding’ for further articulating methodological aspects for researching Christians and Christian communities worldwide. The chapter looks at how ‘worlding; in humanities relate to the categories of connectivity, diversity, unity and locality broadly used in World Christianity discourses.

Methodological and theological explorations
Volume Editors: Martha Frederiks and Dorottya Nagy
Migration has become a major concern. The increase in migration in the 20th and 21st centuries has social, political and economic implications, but also effectuates change in the religious landscape, in religious beliefs and practices and in the way people understand themselves, each other and the world around them. In Religion, Migration and Identity scholars from various disciplines explore issues related to identity and religion, that people - individually and communally -, encounter when affected by migration dynamics. The volume foregrounds methodology in its exploration of the juxtaposition of religion, migration and identity and addresses questions which originate in various geographical locations, demonstrates new modes of interconnectedness, and thus aims to contribute to the ongoing academic discussions on mission, theology and the Christian tradition in general, in a worldwide perspective.
