Kulturanthropologe und Ethnologe (Cultural Anthropologist PRF 8157) (bei Anfrage immer PRF Nummer angeben)

Contribution to Strategy:

The study of any or all of the major socio-religous groups in Bangladesh would be tremendously helpful to our ministry. Understanding these people groups will help us know best where to focus our efforts in reaching them for Christ. It will also help to ensure that any materials or approaches that we use are appropriate for this context.

Ministry: CO- Anthropology/Ethnomusicology


Ethnographies and ethnologies of the Bengali people are limited in number. The applicant will be responsible for updating old ethnographic information and discovering new information in all traditional categories: 1) kinship studies, 2) cultural artifacts, 3) social organization, etc. The candidate may also have opportunities to share the findings with groups who are ministering to the Bangladeshi people, both formally and informally. The current cultural understanding of frontline workers is very limited.
