Abstract

Mit der Ausrufung Deutsch-Ostafrikas zur Kronkolonie des deutschen Kaiserreiches 1891 begann ein weiteres Kapitel seiner offiziellen Kolonialgeschichte. Inwieweit deutsche protestantische Missionsgesellschaften „kolonialbegeistert“ das neuerrungene „deutsche“ Gebiet, das sich in etwa mit der Fläche des heutigen Tansanias deckt, als neues Missionsfeld für ihre Missionstätigkeit in Anspruch genommen haben, ist Gegenstand dieses Buches. Die Erarbeitung dieser Thematik erfolgte aus kritischer, religions–wissenschaftlicher, nicht aber missionstheologischer Perspektive.

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

The focus of this study is the “Syria Mission”, directed by the Protestant missionary society American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) from 1819 to 1870 in the Ottoman province of Syria, operating mainly within the territory of present-day Lebanon. The analysis of the cultural transfer between the Ottoman Empire and the United States of America undertaken in this study focuses on four relevant protagonists, whose contributions have not yet been sufficiently explored in missiological studies: The missionaries Eli Smith and Cornelius Van Dyck as well as the Syrian Protestants Butrus al-Bustani and John Wortabet. As a result, the Syria Mission of the ABCFM demonstrates how two different cultures met in a so called contact zone in the mission field and how these dialogue partners, despite many conflicts and disagreements, succeeded in contributing towards a fruitful dialogue.

Abstract

Het vicariaat van de Belgische minderbroeders in China fungeert als model voor de studie van de missionering vanuit een totaalconcept. Dit boeiend en kritisch relaas beperkt zich niet tot de voor de hand liggende religieuze vraagstelling, maar laat ook de sociaal-economische, politieke en culturele aspecten van het missiegebeuren ruim aan bod komen. Zo komt de auteur tot nieuwe inzichten in de betekenis van de missies in de Belgisch-Chinese diplomatieke relaties en de rol van Leopold II. Het individu zowel als de algemene historische context, de westerse zowel als de beleefde realiteit: dit alles wordt met zin voor detail en nuance onder de loep genomen. Vandaar ook de centrale plaats voor de cultuur- en mentaliteitsgeschiedenis in het boek. De etnografische benadering van de materi

Abstract

La Bretagne : une terre ouverte sur le monde. Terre de marins et terre de pionniers. Terre aussi de missionnaires, ce qu'on oublie trop souvent. De 1800 à 1990, pas moins de 12 000 prêtres, religieux, religieuses sont partis outre-mer pour vivre leur engagement. Au terme d'une longue enquête marquée du sceau de la rigueur historique (ce qui n'exclut pas la sympathie intérieure), Joseph Michel, qui fut l'un de ces missionnaires, fait revivre dans son ouvrage cette population d'aventuriers de l...

Abstract

À l’heure où la Turquie frappe aux portes de l’Union Européenne, elle développe en parallèle une stratégie d’influence dans les républiques turcophones de l’ex-URSS, où sa présence économique et culturelle se renforce depuis le début des années 90. Cette présence turque en Asie centrale est largement l’œuvre d’une puissante organisation religieuse, dirigée par l’énigmatique Fethullah Gülen, longtemps prêcheur officiel au service de l’État turc et actuellement en exil volontaire aux États-Unis...

Abstract

Alors que la haute vallée du Mississippi se transforme en une colonie de peuplement, l’Église catholique tente d’imposer et de structurer autour d’elle cette société nouvelle. Après l’organisation de missions, elle s’attache à construire un diocèse, adossé à l’organisation territoriale proposée par les États-Unis. Cette Église présente la particularité d’être en grande majorité française, issue du vaste mouvement missionnaire qui saisit alors l’Europe.

Abstract

Trust occupies a unique place in contemporary discourse. Seen as both necessary and good, it is variously depicted as enhancing the social fabric, lowering crime rates, increasing happiness, and generating prosperity. It allows for complex political systems, permits human communication, underpins financial instruments and economic institutions, and holds society itself together. There is scant space within this vision for a nuanced discussion of mistrust. With few exceptions, it is treated as little more than a corrosive absence. This monograph, instead, proposes an ethnographic and conceptual exploration of mistrust as a legitimate epistemological stance in its own right. It examines the impact of mistrust on practices of conversation and communication, friendship and society, as well as politics and cooperation, and suggests that suspicion, doubt, and uncertainty can also ground ways of organizing human society and cooperating with others.

Abstract

Scholars have long seen trust as a foundational social good. We therefore have ample studies on building trust in free markets, on cultivating trust in the state, and on rebuilding trust through civil society. The contributors to this volume, instead, take a step back. They ask: Can mistrust ever be more than the flip side of trust, more than the sign of an absence or failure? By looking ethnographically at what a variety of actors actually do when they express mistrust, this volume offers a richly empirical trove of the social life of mistrust across a range of settings.
