Times Enmeshed : gender, space, and history among the Duna of Papua New Guinea / Gabriele Sturzenhofecker

£9.99

Product description

Subject: Papuan New Guinea culture. Non-fiction. Publication date: 1998. Condition: Slight wear along the bottom of the dust jacket and a small dot on the page edges - otherwise as new. Content: This innovative work explores the historical consciousness of a people caught between two life-worlds. The Duna of Papua New Guinea have developed their own views of historical change, expressed in a fusion of two elements: indigenous ideas of cosmological cycles, and introduced Christian notions of world's end.;The book explores how the formation of historical consciousness is constituted differently for men and women. A central focus is the fluid social environment of the Duna, where new contests about gendered personhood and agency emerge in the context of changing power relationships and arenas of cooperation between the sexes. The author reveals the links between gender and history and uses a gendered analysis as a lens of historical perception for viewing a wide range of topics. In the process, gender becomes an idiom of thinking that permeates all social domains, including kinship, marriage, and residence.
