I am Flemming Hansen who served as a missionary to Tanzania 1986 ‒ 1998 (see details). Reflections om my service led me to further studies, and I earned my Ph.D. in missiology (systematic theology) from Aarhus University, 2005.
The purpose of this site is currently to make my thesis available.
Emic Perspectives and Informants
The subtitle of my thesis »Mission, Church and Tradition in Context« says, the thesis analyses and presents »emic perspectives«. It is based on written material, participant observation and, especially, qualitative interviews. I am very grateful to all my interviewees.
