Faith in Schools: Religion, Education, and American Evangelicals in East Africa

By Amy Stambach | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

In writing this book I have benefited greatly from the assistance and support of many people and organizations. The Spencer Foundation and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Vilas Associates Program generously funded field research. The University of Toronto African Studies Program provided office space and a quiet place to write during a sabbatical year. For their permission to conduct research, I acknowledge with much appreciation the Tanzanian Commission for Science and Technology; the Republic of Kenya, Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology; and the Uganda National Council for Science and Technology.

Through their insightful field assistance, Marshall Kwayu, Kristin Phillips, and Benjamin Twagira contributed in important ways to the conceptualization of this book. The Gichiru family offered me a comfortable and welcoming place to live near Nairobi. The ever-amazing and loving Kwayu family once again provided a rare combination of friendship and intellectual insight. My heart is always with them. I am also indebted to the many missionaries, evangelists, churchgoers, parents, teachers, and other participants who patiently and graciously permitted me to observe their work and ask questions. I have attempted to reproduce as accurately and fully as I am able the many perspectives presented to me, but I hasten to say that only I am responsible for what appears in this book.

Portions of this work were presented at conferences and workshops in Copenhagen, Chicago, London, Ljubljana, Madison, Jinja, San Jose, Stanford, and Toronto. Participants at these meetings provided valuable feedback and suggestions on early drafts of chapters. I hope my mention of special thanks to a few will stand for my appreciation to many: Sally Anderson, Michael Apple, Jean Comaroff, John Comaroff, Kathy Hall, Sharon Hutchinson, Michael Lambek, Ritty Lukose, George Malekela, Karen Mundy, Adam Nelson, Kristin Phillips, Todd Sanders, and Jinting Wu. I would also like to thank Sam Kaplan and Brad Weiss for their very useful comments on the manuscript, and Jennifer Helé for her support and encouragement. Isaac Bershady provided invaluable assistance at the crucial last minute, and Rebecca Holmes and Matthew Bershady read and reread versions of each chapter, for which I am extremely grateful.
