A Look at Changes in Primary Religious Education in Malawi from a Swedish Perspective
Linköping University, Department of Religion and Culture. Linköping University, Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
2001 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

When Jessica Olausson visited Malawi in 1996 within the newly created link between the departments of theology and religious studies at the University of Malawi and at Linköpings universitet, she almost by chance got the opportunity to study the ideas behind and the implementation of the Malawian curriculum project on Religious Education in primary education. She got interested in this project, and so did we who shared her material and her thoughts, when she came back to Sweden. And as we continued to reflect, we got troubled about those images of ourselves and our Religious Education which we discerned when we used this project as a mirror.

In this book Jessica Olausson describes and analyses the thoughts behind the new Malawian syllabus in Religious Education and the way textbooks and teachers' guides deal with what in Religious Education is thought of as the three religions of Malawi. She also compares what is taught about Malawian Traditional Religion in Religious Education with what is taught about Malawian culture in Social Studies, and she asks how to deal with distinctively Malawian Muslim practices and efforts towards inculturation in Malawian Christian churches within this educational approach.
