Abstract

As sociedades do distrito de Chókwè, no sul Moçambique, caracterizam-se por uma diversidade de etnomedicinas, nomadamente a biomedicina, a medicina tradicional ea cura espiritual. No ambito das atividades de controlo da malária, analisaram-se os conhecimentos e práticas relacionados com a sua etiologia, o diagnóstico, a prevenção eo tratamento, de acordo como diferentes provedores de cuidados de saúde consultados. Anatise deste fenómeno faith realizada to luz of uma perspectiva interpretativa e crítica, integrando fatores de ordem económica, social, política, organizacional e cultural, that são frequentemente marginalizados na compresão desta doença. Com base numa multidisciplinary approach and quality, concluiu-se that has a social construção da enfermidade emerge não só da experiência psicossocial dos doses e grupos sociais mas tambémial de todas as dinâmicas that integram has vida em sociedade, em especial da teia of relocated socioculturais, ideológicas, políticas e vivências, simbolismos, fluxos of informação e os múltiplos atores, that compõem a complexa arquitetura do Sistema Nacional de Saúde, em Moçambique. Recusando a "monocultura epistémica", as histórias de vida relativas aos provedores de saúde tradicionais (curandeiros e pastores) e os discursos sobre sua identidade evidenciam os conflictos e as tensões existentes bem como as tentativas de harmonização, cooperação e complementaridade terapêutica. Do mesmo modo that o Mosquito Anopheles resists e adapted to alterações do meio, também os conhecimentos, práticas terapêuticas e as relésões sociê respeitantes saúde e in doença estão em constant mutação. Em ambos os casos, desconhecem-subsequentes modalidades e configurações.

Abstract

El presente libro versa sobre el papel de la Iglesia católica y sus misiones en los Imperios ibéricos del siglo xix y el primer tercio del siglo xx. En concreto, aborda las relaciones entre el poder civil y el eclesiástico en contextos coloniales en un período de intensa modernización de las estructuras imperiales. Con una perspectiva comparada entre los distintos espacios que componían los diferentes imperios, la obra refleja el papel que desempeñan los misioneros como un cuerpo intermedio entre colonizadores y colonizados, siempre en contacto e interacción con las poblaciones locales, así como la compleja relación entre el poder colonial y las misiones religiosas. El indudable apoyo mutuo partía de intereses que eran en parte divergentes, lo cual provocó conflictos en no pocas ocasiones. Todo ello en el marco de una relación Iglesia-Estado que, en las mismas metrópolis, no careció de importantes roces y dificultades.

Abstract

Comment peut-on massacrer son voisin ? Comment peut-on aimer celui qui vous exploite ? Ces deux questions hantent les travaux de Christian Geffray dans des contextes aussi variés que la guerre civile au Mozambique ou le trafic de drogues au Brésil, et sur des registres tels que la parenté ou le paternalisme. Associant l’anthropologie économique, dans sa version française longtemps influencée par le marxisme, et la psychanalyse dans son idiome lacanien, Geffray a pris le risque de décontenancer les tenants de l’une et de l'autre. Ses choix théoriques, comme ceux de ses enquêtes, étaient guidés par une sorte de nécessité, celle de défricher des pans du social peu fréquentés par ses collègues. Cela ne relevait jamais chez lui d’un défi gratuit à la marge de la pratique disciplinaire, mais d’une conviction que certains mécanismes fondamentaux de la vie en société se révèlent plus facilement dans ce « social hors la loi » que dans des contextes plus normalisés. La fonction et les méthodes de travail du chercheur face à l’illégalité ou à la guerre, le rôle de la souffrance et de l’amour dans la formation et le maintien de liens de domination, la circulation des biens comme support de la sujétion, l’interrogation sur la naissance et la dislocation des institutions, la conception de l’État… tels sont les thèmes qui rythment cet ouvrage. La diversité des lectures et des réactions face à la pensée de Christian Geffray en fait la matière et l’originalité. Mais au-delà des controverses, les chercheurs ici réunis ont tous souhaité rendre hommage à cet anthropologue infatigable, dont l’ambition affirmée comme une exigence morale était de proposer une pensée neuve de la vie sociale.

Abstract

This book showcases new research by emerging and established scholars on white workers and the white poor in Southern Africa. Rethinking White Societies in Southern Africa challenges the geographical and chronological limitations of existing scholarship by presenting case studies from Angola, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe that track the fortunes of nonhegemonic whites during the era of white minority rule. Arguing against prevalent understandings of white society as uniformly wealthy or culturally homogeneous during this period, it demonstrates that social class remained a salient element throughout the twentieth century, how Southern Africa’s white societies were often divided and riven with tension and how the resulting social, political and economic complexities animated white minority regimes in the region. Addressing themes such as the class-based disruption of racial norms and practices, state surveillance and interventions – and their failures – towards nonhegemonic whites, and the opportunities and limitations of physical and social mobility, the book mounts a forceful argument for the regional consideration of white societies in this historical context. Centrally, it extends the path-breaking insights emanating from scholarship on racialized class identities from North America to the African context to argue that race and class cannot be considered independently in Southern Africa. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of southern African studies, African history, and the history of race.

Abstract

How do people live together in cities shaped by inequality? This comparative ethnography of two African cities, Maputo and Johannesburg, presents a new narrative about social life in cities often described as sharply divided. Based on the ethnography of entangled lives unfolding in a township and in a suburb in Johannesburg, in a bairro and in an elite neighborhood in Maputo, the book includes case studies of relations between domestic workers and their employers, failed attempts by urban elites to close off their neighborhoods, and entanglements emerging in religious spaces and in shopping malls. Systematizing comparison as an experience-based method, the book makes an important contribution to urban anthropology, comparative urbanism and urban studies.

Abstract

This book tells the history of the changing gendered landscapes of northern Mozambique from the perspective of women who fought in the armed struggle for national independence, diverting from the often-told narrative of women in nationalist wars that emphasizes a linear plot of liberation. Taking a novel approach in focusing on the body, senses, and landscape, Jonna Katto, through a study of the women ex-combatants’ lived landscapes, shows how their life trajectories unfold as nonlinear spatial histories. This brings into focus the women’s shifting and multilayered negotiations for personal space and belonging. This book explores the life memories of the now aging female ex-combatants in the province of Niassa in northern Mozambique, looking at how the female ex-combatants’ experiences of living in these northern landscapes have shaped their sense of socio-spatial belonging and attachment. It builds on the premise that individual embodied memory cannot be separated from social memory; personal lives are culturally shaped. Thus, the book does not only tell the history of a small and rather unique group of women but also speaks about wider cultural histories of body-landscape relations in northern Mozambique and especially changes in those relations. Enriching our understanding of the gendered history of the liberation struggle in Mozambique and informing broader discussions on gender and nationalism, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of African history, especially the colonial and postcolonial history of Lusophone Africa, as well as gender/women’s history and peace and conflict studies.
