As an applied anthropologist, my research interests include African oral art, languages and cultures, African religion and indigenous knowledge, popular expressions of Christianity and Islam, and intercultural exchange. I have a BA (double major) in philosophy and sociology, with a minor in fine art, an MA (religious symbolism) from De Paul University, an MDiv from CTU, and MPhil and PhD in Social Anthropology from Cambridge, UK. After ordination (1971) I worked in Ghana for 11 years as a “bush missionary” learning the languages and cultures of four different groups, and for 25 years as a teacher/researcher and founder-director of the Tamale Institute of Cross-Cultural Studies (TICCS). TICCS offers cross-cultural training and conducts research for ministry and development. I also taught at the University for Development Studies-Tamale, CTU, Boston University and Redlands University. I was a research fellow at the Cambridge Institute for African Studies, and was the Chair of Mission and Cross-Cultural Studies at Washington Theological Union, DC. until it closed in 2010. Since then, I have specialized in interculturality training and resolving intercultural conflict for which I use “action methods” derived from psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy of which I am a certified practitioner and trainer through the ASGPP. I have published more than 60 articles, 9 books and edited 16.
