Conceiving Cultures: Reproducing People and Places on Nuakata, Papua New Guinea  eBooks & eLearning

Conceiving Cultures: Reproducing People and Places on Nuakata, Papua New Guinea

Conceiving Cultures: Reproducing People and Places on Nuakata, Papua New Guinea
Publisher: University of Michigan Press | ISBN: 0472098284 | edition 2003 | PDF | pages 352 | 1,58 mb

Conceiving Cultures reflects on the ways anthropologists come to understand and represent the people and cultures that they study. These ideas are developed through an ethnographic study that explores notions of the gendered person through knowledge of and practices relating to reproductive health on the Massim island of Nuakata in Papua New Guinea. In a distinct and engaging style, Shelley Mallett describes the ways that Massim women manage their reproductive health and notes the tensions that arise as they negotiate a path between conflicting local traditions and state-sponsored, Western-style medical practices. The interaction among local women, a community health worker, and practitioners of traditional medicine provides a focus for reflection on the impact of Western medical knowledge and practices on local ideas concerning gender, person, body, spirit, individuality, agency, and mortality.
By conjoining problems of reproductive health with feminist and anthropological theories on the gendered person and the political/ethical dilemmas of writing cultures, this book makes a unique contribution to contemporary theorizing about these cross-disciplinary debates. The text asserts the legitimate place of reflexive, if not autobiographic, ethnographic genres, especially in studies of person, place, and gender relations.
Shelley Mallett is Research Fellow, the Australian Research Centre in Sex Health and Society, La Trobe University, Melbourne.

Papua New Guinea’s general election in 2007 attracted particular interest for several reasons. Not only did it follow what was widely acknowledged as the country’s worst election ever, in 2002 (in which elections in six of the country’s 109 electorates were declared to be ‘failed elections’), it was the first general election to be held under a new limited preferential voting system.

Conflict and Resource Development in the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea

Conflict and Resource Development in the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea by Nicole Haley
English | Jan. 15, 2011 | ISBN: 1921313455 | 206 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

The Southern Highlands is one of Papua New Guinea’s most resource-rich provinces, but for a number of years the province has been riven by conflict. Longstanding inter-group rivalries, briefly set aside during the colonial period, have been compounded by competition for the benefits provided by the modern state and by fighting over the distribution of returns from the several big mining and petroleum projects located within the province or impinging upon it.
