Resurrecting Cannibals : the Catholic Church, Witch-hunts, and the production of pagans in Western Uganda by Heike Behrend( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores cannibalism, food, eating and being eaten in its many variations. It deals with people who feel threatened by cannibals, churches who combat cannibals and anthropologists who are made to confront themselves as cannibals. It describes how different African and European images of the cannibal intersected and influenced each other in Tooro, Western Uganda, where the figure of the resurrecting cannibal draws on both pre-Christian ideas and church dogma of the bodily resurrection and the ritual of Holy Communion. In Tooro cannibals are witches: they bewitch people so that they die only to be resurrected and eaten. This is how they were perceived in the 1990s when a lay movement of the Catholic Church, the Uganda Martyrs Guild (UMG) organized witch-hunts to cleanse the country. The UMG was responding to an extended crisis: growing poverty, the retreat and corruption of the local government, a guerrilla war, a high death rate through AIDS, accompanied by an upsurge of occult forces in the form of cannibal witches. By trying to deal, explain and "heal" the situation of "internal terror", the UMG reinforced the perception of the reality of witches and cannibals while at the same time containing violence and regaining power for the Catholic Church in competition for "lost souls" with other Pentecostal churches and movements. -- Publisher description

9/11 and its remediations in popular culture and arts in Africa( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

9/11 has been described as an "absolute event" that radically changed the course of history. It reinforced the opposition between Christian and Muslim worlds and led to the declaration of a unilateral war against a global network of terrorists that broke up the classical definition of war as a war between nation states. Yet, 9/11 also created responses in parts of the world that were not directly involved in the unfolding "war on terror." In Africa, local conflicts were re-mapped into an emerging new geography of anger that also reflects the effects of marginalization in a globalized world. The essays of this volume explore local remediations of 9/11 in African popular culture (posters, photographs, videos, cartoons, etc.) and visual arts. They give evidence of the fundamental ambivalence towards the event of 9/11 and provide insights into the various ways distant conflicts are translated into intense proximities [bron: Amazon]

Seelenklau zur Geschichte eines interkulturellen Transfers ; ein Essay( )

1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Sir James Frazers berühmten Buch Der Goldene Zweigʺ von 1890, das großen Einfluß nicht nur auf die nachfolgende Generation von Ethnologen nahm, sondern auch Schriftsteller und Philosophen wie R. Kipling, Ezra Pound, D.H. Lawrence, T.S. Eliot, L. Wittgenstein und nicht zuletzt S. Freud nachhaltig beeindruckte, ist viel von Seele die Rede. In wahrhaft wilder Reihung, auf der ganzen Erde hin -und herspringend, beschreibt Frazer vor allem in dem Kapitel Gefahren der Seeleʺ die Seelenvorstellungen der Wildenʺ in immer neuen Variationen: Die Seele als dickes, dünnes, leichtes oder schweres Männchen oder Zwerg; die Seele als Schatten, Bild oder Widerschein sowie als Teil der Person, der auch abwesend sein, verloren oder geraubt werden kann
