The fourteenth international and interdisciplinary conference of the European Research Network on Global Pentecostalism (GloPent) will be held on 9–10 February 2024 at the University of Heidelberg, Germany

Conveners: Judith Bachmann, Michael Bergunder, Anna Kirchner


Conference Theme and Programme

Pentecostalism's attitudes to gender are diverse. Historical, political and social research frequently documents the significant cultural and social influence exerted by Pentecostal churches on gender debates. Moreover, the theological perspectives on gender within the Pentecostal movement demonstrate substantial heterogeneity.  This conference aims to contribute to the research debate on how Pentecostals deal with questions of gender in their everyday lives, laying emphasis on their self-perceptions and practices. Thereby, it will also address the question of whether gender is just a side issue or could be an entry point into global Pentecostalism in general.
