Religion and Migration: Cases for a Global Material Ethics
This review article describes three ethnographies, two on peculiar churches in Africa and their relationship to the global, and one on the biographies of Africans who migrate globally in search of a better life. I elucidate several intersecting themes in these ethnographies – perception and materiality; ethical life; existential mobility – which suggestively point to a concept I term global material ethics, one that innovates studies of religion, migration, and contemporary cultural life in Africa.
