University of South Africa
Johan Strijdom is Professor of Comparative Religious Studies at the University of South Africa, Pretoria. In his research he focuses on religious nationalism and violence, critiques of indigenous religious claims and practices, and critical approaches to material mediations of religion. These areas are analyzed in a comparative and historically nuanced way, by elaborating a critique of class, gender and ethnic power relations from a postcolonial location in the global south. He is currently editor of the Journal for the Study of Religion, which is the official journal of the Association for the Study of Religion in Southern Africa.
