About Autumn School 2022

What we are up to

Transcultural networks result from permanent contacts between different cultural contexts, reinforced by globalization, intercultural relations and worldwide migration. These encounters enable new transcultural connections and transformations that form a basis for future-oriented global cooperation.
The network of Christian churches in the present is shaped by missionary history, colonialism and globalization in the 19th and 20th centuries, but also by experiences of living and celebrating together, and tends to develop into multidirectional transcultural networks. Education is an important part of this network. Transcultural networks of churches therefore represent outstanding potential for promoting education, academic freedom and social responsibility.
