The thirteenth international and interdisciplinary conference of the European Research Network on Global Pentecostalism (GloPent) will be held on 1–2 April 2022 at the University of Cambridge, UK.

Conveners: Jörg Haustein and David Maxwell

Conference Theme

Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity is often seen as a catalyst for social and cultural change. This chimes with how Pentecostals and Charismatics tend to portray their own religion – as transformative, modern, and on the cutting edge of socio-cultural developments. Yet this view tends to de-contextualise Pentecostalism from the wider cultural and social fabric within which these transformations take place. This conference seeks to recover a more inter-connected perspective that not only asks how Pentecostal movements have effected socio-cultural changes, but also to what extent they have rather themselves been influenced and driven by larger transformations in World Christianity and society at large. The goal of the conference is to place Pentecostalism firmly within the recent history and contemporary expression of World Christianity.

The conference features 45 papers in parallel panels and keynotes by:

The conference is held in a hybrid format with some presenters and participants joining online.
