Research

Jörg Haustein's fields of interest are Pentecostalism in Africa and worldwide, as well as the history of Islam in colonial East Africa.

He has extensively researched and published about the Pentecostal movement in Ethiopia, its history, its relation to politics and its interaction with other confessions. His doctoral dissertation (published by Harrassowitz 2011) delineates the politics of history in the Ethiopian Pentecostal movement and won two major awards. Jörg Haustein is a founding member of the European Research Network on Global Pentecostalism (GloPent), which networks academic research on Pentecostalism worldwide and across the disciplines.

His current project deals with Islam in Tanganyika during German colonial rule in the fields of law, politics, education and missions. Based on German archives in Berlin, Dar es Salaam, and elsewhere, the project traces the representation of Islam and its transformation in dialogue with post-colonial theory.
