Worship and Social Engagement in Urban Aboriginal-led Australian Pentecostal Congregations: (Re)imagining Identity in the Spirit provides an ethnographic account of three Australian Pentecostal congregations with Aboriginal senior leadership. Within this Pentecostalism, Dreaming realities and identities must be brought together with the Christian gospel. Yet current political and economic relationships with the Australian state complicate the possibilities of interactions between culture and Spirit. The result is a matrix or network of these churches stretching across Australia, with Black Australian Pentecostals resisting and accommodating the state through the construction of new and ancient identities. This work occurs most notably in context of the worship ritual, which functions through ritual interaction chains to energise the various social engagement programs these congregations sustain.

Joanna Cruickshank and Patricia Grimshaw

In White Women, Aboriginal Missions and Australian Settler Governments, Joanna Cruickshank and Patricia Grimshaw provide the first detailed study of the central part that white women played in missions to Aboriginal people in Australia. As Aboriginal people experienced violent dispossession through settler invasion, white mission women were positioned as ‘mothers’ who could protect, nurture and ‘civilise’ Aboriginal people. In this position, missionary women found themselves continuously navigating the often-contradictory demands of their own intentions, of Aboriginal expectations and of settler government policies. Through detailed studies that draw on rich archival sources, this book provides a new perspective on the history of missions in Australia and also offers new frameworks for understanding the exercise of power by missionary women in colonial contexts.

Travelogues: The Pacific

Travelogues feature among the mostly studied primary and secondary sources in researching contacts and interactions between Western travellers and indigenous societies. In many cases, they provide unique insights into these encounters, and often they represent the only windows for studying approaches to and consequences of such intercultural meetings.
Inevitably skewed toward the culture of Western travellers, travelogues often contain important observations and data on native societies. Since many of such communities were subsequently deeply altered, travel reports are highly coveted for their potential to contribute to reconstructing the types and characteristics of aboriginal communities.
IDC Publishers has now selected travel reports by missionaries and others who travelled the Pacific in the eighteenth and nineteenth century.
