The Nature and Role of Religious Studies at the University of Zambia: 1985-2005
Carmody, Brendan
British Journal of Religious Education, v30 n1 p25-35 Jan 2008
The place of religion in higher education has been and remains a complex issue internationally. This article aims to outline the nature and development of Religious Studies at the University of Zambia in Lusaka (UNZA) as an instance of how religion entered higher education in an African setting. In doing so, it will also provide perspectives on the method that has been adopted in the study of religion and religious education and will highlight elements of the role which these disciplines strive to play at UNZA.
