13 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents important essays inspired by the pioneering works of three leading women anthropologists. The title may therefore be read in more than one way. The three biographical essays in this volume as well as the comprehensive bibliographies of these anthropologists' works fully confirm the high esteem in which their remarkable personalities are held to this day and offer material about them not formerly available. The book includes important discussions by distinguished social anthropologists, based on rich ethnographic data, of the many identities, personhoods, powers, and other various categorizations of women. Shirley Ardener's introductory essay places the volume in the wider context of some areas of major concern to social scientists, such as the construction of identities, kinship theory, and the production of knowledge itself, as well as of the particularities of women in diverse cultures
Chisungu : a girls' initiation ceremony among the Bemba of Zambia by Audrey I Richards( Book )

37 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While there have been a number of descriptions and interpretations of boys' initiation rituals, Audrey Richards's classic study of initiation rites among the Bemba remains one of the few studies to deal in detail with the initiation of girls into adult life. Dr Richards observed the entire chisungu or female initiation rite, an almost continuous series of complex ceremonies lasting for a month. Her detailed description of the elements of the ritual, and her analysis of it in terms of the culture of matrilineal society, have made this a classic ethnographic and theoretical text. Cel

in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ganda live in the province of Buganda in Uganda. This file consists of 28 documents with a time range from 1200 to 1991. The studies focus on Baganda history before British overrule (1200-1900), acculturation during the subsequent period of British administration (1901-1961), and various subjects in the contemporary period following independence in 1962. The file includes studies of the traditional system of authority and changes in the system that occurred after 1900. Other studies focus on post-1900 changes in land tenure, status, social mobility, and marriage. Two labor studies examine labor migration under the colonial administration and the assimilation of immigrant laborers in Buganda in the 1950s. Other postwar studies include examinations of political behavior and attitudes, changes in occupational structure, and the effect of the Baganda authority system on innovation and change. Post-Independence studies include an examination of ethnic categories of mental health, infant care and development, and the impact of microtechnologies on rural life
