Event description

Description

A Memorial Conference for John McCracken and Jack Thompson

In 2017, two eminent historians whose work focused on Malawi passed away. To commemorate John and Jack we cordially invite you to attend the conference ‘Politics, Society and Christianity in Malawi and Beyond’ on 26 April 2018. The conference offers an opportunity to reflect on their tremendous contribution to African studies, studies of African Christianity and the historiography of Africa. Further, it provides a platform for younger generations of scholars who have been inspired by John’s and Jack’s work.

The conference invites you to explore key themes in the historical and social scientific study of Africa featuring prominently in John’s and Jack’s research such as the embeddedness of the academy in society both in Africa and the UK; Christianity and power; material and visual culture in Africa; and Malawi and Global History.
