MA S.K. Bussey

Doctoral Student & Managing Editor, African Theology Worldwide
Intercultural theology / missiology

The subject of my dissertation is the notion of sacrifice in African theology. In particular, I’m interested in how African approaches challenge Northern essentialising and universalising tendencies and suggest fresh ways of appropriating the notion of sacrifice today. For an example of my work, see my recent article: Samuel K. Bussey. “Stories of Sacrifice from Below: From Girard to Ekem, Kalengyo and Oduyoye.” Stellenbosch Theological Journal 6, no. 4 (2020): 183-212.

I’m also employed as managing editor of the website African Theology Worldwide. The aim of the website is to make African Christian Theology more accessible, both in Africa and around the globe. As managing editor I take care of most of the day-to-day organisation, research and communication involved in developing the website and creating content.
