Contextualizing the contemporary situation in the history of Christian movements in Africa, and by applying Foucault’s notion of heterotopia, this introduction and the subsequent papers show that Christian doctrines and practices are creating social spaces of altering relational ethics, identities and gender roles that appeal especially to upwardly mobile women.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2012</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Bochow, Astrid</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-08-28T09:22:48Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>van Dijk, Rijk</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/46739"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> <dc:creator>van Dijk, Rijk</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/30"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Christian Creations of New Spaces of Sexuality, Reproduction, and Relationships in Africa : Exploring Faith and Religious Heterotopia</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Bochow, Astrid</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-08-28T09:22:48Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/30"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
