Gender and the Transgression of Moral and Sexual Norms in the Revival Churches of Kinshasa and the Congolese Diaspora. — This paper explores the transgression of religious norms within Revival churches which, following the example of Pentecostalism, have experienced a spectacular success in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as well as in the Congolese Diaspora over the past few decades. While the boundaries separating the “Christian world” and the “Pagan world” are strongly asserted by the born again and generate huge divisions across the Congolese people worldwide, nevertheless it is sometimes difficult to identify these boundaries apart from the professed life-saving and “civilising” morality claims. A case in point involves the recurrent scandals involving Churches and their leaders around issues of money and sex. Based on studies over the past ten years within the Congolese community, we investigate this apparent ambivalence of sexual morality by considering the fact that the Church itself is a place which supports the ongoing construction of a normative utopia, while at the same time hosting practices that directly contradict Christian norms. We shall see how the notion of heterotopia, proposed by Foucault for considering “other spaces”, allows us to avoid the shortcomings of taking a binary approach (emancipation versus submission) toward the offering of religion. Instead we are able to consider pluralistic identity repertories of the churches stemming in part from their long history. The consideration of these transgressions sheds much needed light on the complexity of the issue of gender inside and outside of the Church. [less ▲]

Cet article formule un ensemble de réflexions visant à repenser une sociologie du développement centrée sur les acteurs et leurs pratiques, leurs représentations comme leurs identités ou leurs stratégies dans un souci de rééquilibrage analytique et méthodologique entre « développeurs » et « bénéficiaires » qui tienne compte des dynamiques du dedans comme du dehors et de leurs influences réciproques. Un renouvellement de la sociologie du développement requiert une attention plus fine aux interactions entre des acteurs différenciés (sur un plan économique, social, culturel, technologique et politique), qui , s’insérant dans des réseaux étendus et fluctuants, rendent possibles en termes simmelien la socialisation d’un contenu particulier, soit le « développement » décliné sous différents aspects ( de la lutte contre la pauvreté au projet de constitution de sociétés civiles en passant par des « petits projets » participatifs). Il nous faut donc, être attentif aux phénomènes d’inter-influence, aux processus de co-élaboration des pratiques et des discours qui participent à la mise en œuvre du développement et qui constituent sans doute l’objet fondamental d’une nouvelle sociologie du développement.

This text aims at grasping the use of the local languages and cultures (production activities) within reforms and other measures taken by the Burkinabe government since independence until today. At first, the text analyses the linguistic, cultural and educational policies of Burkina Faso. It argues that, against an individual promotion with the “French-speaking school capital” and to help the economy recover, the first postcolonial governments attempted to reform the school institution. In order to their goal, they build a formula linking primary education, local languages and cultures (work activities carried out by children) and self-development. Secondly, one argues that NGO’s, which are dominant in the school field in Burkina Faso, revive this formula in order to take up the school challenges imposed by the World Bank. [less ▲]
