Symposium Theme
This symposium will explore the growth, movement and influence of Pentecostal Charismatic Christianities in Oceania. It will consider PCCs as a powerful cultural force within Australasian and Oceanic communities and their role in reconfiguring spatial, social, political and cultural relationships. While the causative influences of PCCs in Oceania are contemplated, the symposium will also look at the overarching cultural, economic and political milieus in which PCCs are embedded. Additionally, a consideration of PCC's broader transnational scope of influence will enrich this cross-cultural and interdisciplinary dialogue.
