Dakar 2023

Religion and Education in Africa

Dakar, Senegal

6 to 9 June 2023



The third afriBIAN conference entitled “Religion and Education in Africa” will be held at the Cheikh Anta Diop University in Dakar on 6th and 7th June 2023. The conference will be followed by an alumni workshop on 8th June 2023. An excursion and cultural activity to learn more about Dakar to round up the event will take place on the last day, 9th June 2023.

The focus of this third afriBIAN conference is on the impact of religion in educational institutions and in the public sphere in Africa. How is the teaching on various religions part of the curriculum in public or private education instititions in different African countries? What kind of religious or moral values are (supposed to be) transmitted in the respective institutions?

We welcome Alumni who completed their doctoral studies at the University of Bayreuth and who currently work on Africa-centered topics to send their abstracts on — but not limited to — any of the following sub-topics:

  • Education in religion and religious education in learning institutions
  • Religious curricula in education
  • Religious interactions in learning institutions
  • Religious rituals in school and academic environments
  • Religious education in private contexts
  • Religious education and the impact on society
