'Mission at and from the Margins' project, Hyderabad, India

On September 23-27, 2009 the 'Mission at and from the Margins' colloquium at the Henry Martyn Institute, Hyderabad, India brought together about 20 scholars who have been working on issues related to Dalit Christian experience in Andhra Pradesh as part of a wider project.

As well as theological and historical approaches, their research includes ethnographic field work in local villages. They are attempting to recover the Dalit agency and agenda in Christian missions and draw the implications of this agency for the ecumenical imagination of church´s mission in the world today. The conveners of the study are: Rev. Joseph Prabhakar Dayam, Rev. I. P. Asheervadam and Rev. Dr. Peniel Jesudas Rufus Rajkumar.

Further details of the study are available as an MSWord file here.
