Mary, motherhood and nation

religion and gender ideology in Bougainville's secessionist warfare

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The importance and significance of gender in religious ideas, practices and experiences is increasingly acknowledged and studied. As these studies show, religion is a thoroughly gendered phenomenon. In this article I focus on the Catholic religion, and in particular, on women's and men's beliefs in Mary on Bougainville Island during and immediately succeeding the nationalist struggle for independence from PNG.
