Profile
Afeosemime “Afe” Adogame, the Maxwell M. Upson Professor of Christianity and Society, is a leading scholar of the African Diaspora. He holds a PhD in history of religions from the University of Bayreuth in Germany and has served as associate professor of world Christianity and religious studies, and director international at School of Divinity, New College, at The University of Edinburgh in Scotland.

“One of the biggest lessons I learned was how to be charitable to views other than my own. Christian charity was shown to me, not just in the readings for class, but from the professors, and the Seminary community.”
