|Issue Date:||Dec-2013||Citation:||Fountain, P., Lau, S.W. (2013-12). Anthropological theologies: Engagements and encounters. Australian Journal of Anthropology (The) 24 (3) : 227-234. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1111/taja.12048||Abstract:||In a ground-breaking article Joel Robbins analysed what he characterises as the 'awkward' relationship between anthropology and theology and invited greater anthropological engagement with its disciplinary cousin. This Special Issue responds to this provocation by using Robbins' argument as a bouncing board for wide-ranging forays into a common set of concerns. In investigating anthropological theologies the collection critically attends to the kinds of engagements and encounters that already take place and also lays out future agendas for further interactions. We call for an anthropology that is open to provisional, dialogic and potentially transformative interactions across diverse theologies and suggest that such a move will help shed light on the possibilities of re-modelling the practice of anthropology. © 2013 Australian Anthropological Society.||Source Title:||Australian Journal of Anthropology (The)||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/126264||ISSN:||10358811||DOI:||10.1111/taja.12048|
