Yale-Edinburgh 2021

Oral, Print, and Digital Cultures in World Christianity and the History of Mission
On-line, from New College, University of Edinburgh, 22–24 June 2021 #YaleEdin2021

The 2021 meeting of the Yale-Edinburgh Group on World Christianity and the History of Mission is on the theme ‘Oral, Print, and Digital Cultures in World Christianity and the History of Mission’. This year’s theme uses the language of culture to examine three different mediums in which the Christian message is communicated, and the Christian life is practiced.


In order to maximise the benefits of the online format, this year’s conference includes a mixture of pre-recorded (asynchronous) and live (synchronous) events.

Keynote Lecture
