The Centre of African Studies hosts visiting PhD researcher, Francis Benyah
Francis research focuses on Pentecostal/Charismatic theology and African Pentecostal Christianity with a special interest in how Pentecostal/Charismatic theology and African Pentecostal Christianity intersects and interacts with public life in areas such as media, politics, health, and human rights. His doctoral thesis focuses on the perceived causes of mental illness in Ghana and the healing modalities or therapeutics approaches that are employed in remedying it.
On his stay at CAS, Francis writes
"My stay at CAS has been worthwhile. I have enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and working relationship among the staff at the centre. I have benefited immensely from the constructive feedback from staff on my research at internal seminars and one-on-one interaction with staff. This has helped me to reformulate my thoughts in some areas of my research and most importantly, strengthen my arguments more cogently."
