Work and Research

During 2013-2015, I received the prestigious Vice Chancellor's post doc Fellowship and developed my niche area in embodied or body hermeneutics under the broader topic of African Hermeneutics. So far, I have an outstanding research output of 17 articles in peer-reviewed local and international journals, 2 books, 4 book chapters and 7 non0peer reviewed articles. In addition, I travelled to local and international conferences such as Austria, America and Norway to present papers which were positively received. My research is a major contribution, from a African perspective, that cuts a niche area in the area of African hermeneutics.

My vision for the future of research at UP and how I will contribute to this development

Regarding policy, my research comes at a crucial time when the university is brainstorming around the issue of curriculum that answers local and African questions. Thus from the perspective of humanities and theology, I look forward to critical and interdisciplinary studies, which goes beyond and deeper than the traditional narrow fields. I see my research shifting the discussion from traditional focus on the text, the bible, which has occupied the faculty for a century now, to the body, in its various forms or variables.
