Contact Zone. Explorations in Intercultural Theology

The term Contact Zone was coined in postcolonial discourse to signify the place where cultures and religions meet. It implies that first contact, cultural-religious exchange and conflict have always been determined by power-relations. Making use of communication theories, hermeneutics and aesthetics intercultural theology generates new terminologies and theoretical tools to explore these interactions. Its scope ranges from issues such as dialogue and syncretism to fundamentalism and ethnicity. Perspectives of culture, religion, race, class, gender and inclusion alike are involved in the necessary multi-axial approach. Contact Zone creates a space where a choir of multiple voices is responding to the challenges of cultural religious pluralism, rethinking theology in the 21st century.
The series comprises monographs (incl. PhD dissertations) and anthologies (incl. conference proceedings).

[Der Begriff Contact Zone wurde im postkolonialen Diskurs geprägt, um den Ort zu kennzeichnen, an dem Kulturen und Religionen aufeinandertreffen. Er impliziert, das Erster Kontakt, kulturell-religiöser Austausch und Konflikt immer auch durch Machtverhältnisse bestimmt werden. Unter Zuhilfenahme von Kommunikationstheorien, Hermeneutik und Ästhetik entwickelt Interkulturelle Theologie neue Terminologien und ein theoretisches Instrumentarium, um diese Interaktionsprozesse zu erforschen. Ihr Spektrum reicht dabei von Themen wie Dialog und Synkretismus bis zu Fundamentalismus und Ethnizität. Perspektiven wie Kultur, Religion, Rasse, Klasse, Gender und Inklusion sind gleichermaßen in diese notwendigerweise multi-axiale Herangehensweise involviert. Contact Zone kreiert einen Raum, in dem ein Chor vielfältiger Stimmen auf die Herausforderungen des kulturell-religiösen Pluralismus im 21. Jahrhundert reagiert.
Die Serie umfasst Monographien (einschliesslich Doktorarbeiten) und Sammelbände.]
