Abstract

Die protestantische Missionsbewegung war von einer ganzen Reihe von Initiativen, Veranstaltungen, Vereinen und Publikationen getragen. Missionsvereine, Nähkränzchen, Missionsstunden, Missionsblätter und nicht zuletzt zahllose Missionsfeste, auf denen häufig ein Missionar über seine Erfahrungen aus dem Missionsgebiet berichtete, trugen dazu bei, die Anliegen der Äußeren Mission bis in die letzten Winkel der ländlichen Gesellschaft hinein bekannt zu machen. Dennoch liegen über diese Seite der Äußeren Mission bisher kaum Forschungsarbeiten vor. Das vorliegende Buch greift dieses Desiderat auf und versucht beispielhaft an der Region um Göttingen in einer Verbindung diskursanalytischer und mikrohistorischer Ansätze zu rekonstruieren, wie sich die Unterstützung der Äußeren Mission genau gestaltete und welche Akteurinnen und Akteure sich für Mission interessierten und wie engagierten. Dabei steht die Frage im Vordergrund, welche Bedeutung diesen Initiativen in einer Verflechtungsgeschichte um 1900 als Transmissionsriemen für die Produktion von Bildern aus dem Außereuropäischen zukam. In der Unterstützung der Äußeren Mission, so soll gezeigt werden, verbanden sich lokale Identitätsdiskurse und religiöse Deutungsangebote, die »das Globale« im Lokalen strukturierten.

Abstract

In 1670, the ancient homeland of the Cree and Ojibwe people of Hudson Bay became known to the English entrepreneurs of the Hudson’s Bay Company as Rupert’s Land, after the founder and absentee landlord, Prince Rupert. For four decades, Jennifer S. H. Brown has examined the complex relationships that developed among the newcomers and the Algonquian communities—who hosted and tolerated the fur traders—and later, the missionaries, anthropologists, and others who found their way into Indigenous lives and territories. The eighteen essays gathered in this book explore Brown’s investigations into the surprising range of interactions among Indigenous people and newcomers as they met or observed one another from a distance, and as they competed, compromised, and rejected or adapted to change.While diverse in their subject matter, the essays have thematic unity in their focus on the old HBC territory and its peoples from the 1600s to the present. More than an anthology, the chapters of An Ethnohistorian in Rupert’s Land provide examples of Brown’s exceptional skill in the close study of texts, including oral documents, images, artifacts, and other cultural expressions. The volume as a whole represents the scholarly evolution of one of the leading ethnohistorians in Canada and the United States.

Abstract

Although over eighty percent of the country is Muslim, Indonesia is marked by an extraordinary diversity in language, ancestry, culture, religion and ways of life. This book focuses on the Christian Dani of West Papua, providing a social and ethnographic history of the most important indigenous population in the troubled province. It presents a fascinating overview of the Dani’s conversion to Christianity, examining the social, religious and political uses to which they have put their new religion. Based on independent research carried out over many years among the Dani people, the book provides an abundance of new material on religious and political events in West Papua. Underlining the heart of Christian-Muslim rivalries, the book questions the fate of religion in late-modern times.

Abstract

Le décret de la Communauté française du 24 juillet 1997 définissant les missions prioritaires de l'enseignement est original à plus d'un titre. Quant à la procédure suivie pour son élaboration, tout d'abord : il fait suite aux Assises de l'enseignement et aux travaux du Conseil de l'Éducation et de la Formation qui ont assuré une large participation aux acteurs de la communauté éducative. On s'interroge aujourd'hui sur les rapports entre démocratie représentative et démocratie participative. Le décret « missions » mérite l'attention à cet égard. Quant à son contenu et ses enjeux ensuite. L'exposé des motifs les présente comme suit : « Ce décret aurait dû être le premier de tous les textes législatifs organisant renseignement obligatoire. Définissant les missions de l'Éducation, il est le texte fondateur de tous les autres ». Il a déjà produit plusieurs changements considérables dans le fonctionnement et la vie des écoles, notamment la mise sur pied de « conseils de participation », des règles nouvelles au sujet de l'inscription, de l'évaluation et de l'exclusion des élèves, ou encore à propos de la gratuité de l'enseignement. Les questions que soulève pareille législation sont nombreuses. Peut-on formuler en règles de droit des objectifs généraux ? Quelles sont la valeur et la pertinence de ceux- ci ? Comment les normes décrétales doivent-elles être interprétées ? Que reste-t-il de la liberté d'enseignement garantie par la Constitution ? C'est pour traiter ces questions que le Centre de droit de la culture des Facultés universitaires Saint-Louis a organisé le vendredi 25 septembre 1998 une journée d'études interdisciplinaire. Le présent ouvrage livre une version revue et approfondie des exposés présentés à cette occasion.

Abstract

The book is a treasure trove for scholars in the field of science of religion who focus on comparative religion, spirituality and the reception of Christianity in India and Ireland. The strength of the book is its comprehensive scope, critical and narratological methodology, and the depth of the data analysis. The exposition of the contextual, creative and strategic missionary work of Amy Beatrice Carmichael in south India is innovative and highly informative. The book contains a high level of original research in that it goes beyond the existing research on the Carmichael biographies. The knowledge of the field is comprehensive and the number and quality of sources impressive. The biographic genre and methodology complement the extensive research in the book. This combination constitutes a genuine historical foundation for the scholarship. The main purpose of the book is to open the field of science to and pique the interest of professional theologians with an interest in missiology and in the valuable contribution of Amy Carmichael of Dohnavur. The book includes a comprehensive overview of the existing scholarly work on the topic and then makes a further innovative contribution to and, in the end, provides the most comprehensive picture of the work of Amy Carmichael to date. It will become the definitive reference book on the history of Christian missionary work in south India. It is original research and no part of the book was plagiarised from any other publication or has been published elsewhere before.

Abstract

In May of 1868, Elizabeth Bingham Young and her new husband, Egerton Ryerson Young, began a long journey from Hamilton, Ontario, to the Methodist mission of Rossville. For the next eight years, Elizabeth supported her husband’s work at two mission houses, Norway House and then Berens River. Unprepared for the difficult conditions and the “eight months long” winter, and unimpressed with “eating fish twenty-one times a week,” the young Upper Canada wife rose to the challenge. In these remote outposts, she gave birth to three children, acted as a nurse and doctor, and applied both perseverance and determination to learning Cree, while also coping with poverty and short supplies within her community. Her account of mission life, as seen through the eyes of a woman, is the first of its kind to be archived and now to appear in print.Accompanying Elizabeth’s memoir, and offering a counterpoint to it, are the reminiscences of her eldest son, “Eddie.” Born at Norway House in 1869 and nursed by a Cree woman from infancy, Eddie was immersed in local Cree and Ojibwe life, culture, and language, in many ways exemplifying the process of reverse acculturation often in evidence among the children of missionaries. Like those of his mother, Eddie’s memories capture the sensory and emotional texture of mission life, providing a portrait that is startling in its immediacy.Skillfully woven together and meticulously annotated by Jennifer Brown, these two remarkable recollections of mission life are an invaluable addition to the fields of religious, missionary, and Aboriginal history. In their power to resurrect experience, they are also a fascination to read.

Abstract

El libro de Susana Andrade constituye un trabajo serio que interroga las razones de la conversión al protestantismo de la población indígena de la provincia de Chimborazo. El análisis de varios sistemas religiosos presentes en la provincia demuestra cómo éstos son una estrategia de adaptación a un mundo de intensos cambios económicos, sociales y políticos. Las antiguas creencias y dioses ya no son considerados efectivos. El análisis del evangelismo protestante indaga la transformación de las...

Abstract

"The project that inspires this volume is the production and analysis of certain and stabilized data on the university system, in an interpretative framework presented by teachers and researchers who have long been engaged in studies and research on reformism and innovation processes in universities. The collected essays offer a mapping of the University and its various aspects: from system governance to the training programs and funding, from postgraduate training to internationalization, from the evaluation of scientific research to ""Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale"" and the Third Mission."
