Marie Curie Fellow Hans Olsson publishes article

Marie Curie Fellow at Centre of African Studies, Hans Olsson, has published an article titled: "Chasing Money: Tourist-Induced Labor Migration and Pentecostal Teachings of Success in Zanzibar". The article explores the role of Pentecostal-Charismatic teachings of growth and success in the context of Christian labor migrants’ efforts to “make it” in the predominantly Muslim society of Zanzibar. It is an ethnographic assessment of how dreams of making money and accumulating wealth in the islands’ growing tourist economy are addressed in teachings on how to mature spiritually through a combination of classic holiness living and ideas of how to reach and maximize people’s inner potential.
