THE GAP BETWEEN WESTERN, SECULAR-ADJACENT MISSIOLOGY AND ANIMIST CULTURES

Although Christianity has spread and flourished throughout Africa's continent, discipleship attempts have failed to teach converts how to grow in certain areas of their newfound faith, which has resulted in syncretism. Common questions among new believers at the root of the problem are many missionaries who started out seeking to spread Western Christian culture in animist cultures but failed to address common questions raised by new believers. This essay explores the secularization of Western Christianity and the subsequent ontological shifts in worldview.

Trauma and the African Animist Imaginary in Aminatta Forna’s The Memory of Love and Delia Jarrett-Macauley’s Moses, Citizen, and Me

This essay contributes to a decolonized discussion of trauma by intervening in discussions surrounding trauma theory and postcolonial studies, tracing how African animism can lead to a decolonized discourse of trauma. These books describe Sierra Leone's collective trauma and envision political futures for the country. Narrating local experiences of life in post-u2013 civil war Sierra Leone, these novels use animist modes of consciousness to theorize the collective trauma of the collective suffering and envision political futures for the author.

Becoming Enviroment_becoming post animist: Life is an Utopia

This book examines case studies of my art series titled u2018Life is an Utopia, which is expanding to and its variations, leading to post animism. I explore the Japanese cultural term u2018Mau2019 as an opening to the outside, to everything that surrounds us and a difficult view of the system from a resilient perspective, based on counter arguments from the blunting and contemplative positions in the series. Life is an Utopia (Utopia u2019) a film festival in which our cultural interaction in nature explores our relationship with nature by a reflection on the importance of water in our lives. In order to expand the knowledge of the artistic process and scientific investigation of the art series and the artwork ISLAND, I want to debunk the debate about spirituality, coloniality, post animism, Amerindian animism, socio-political, and socio-environmental accountability for the tragedies. Starting from the perspective of silence and Ma as a form of political resistance and resilience in Brazil, beginning with the oil stains off the northeast coast and the recent environmental disasters, especially the ruptures of the Mariana and Brumadinho dams, I will fly a line of flight between socio-political and environmental aspects around the Fukushima Nuclear accident and the recent environmental disasters in Brazil, especially the oil stains that struck the northeastern coast and the ruptures of the Mariana.

Animist Ontologies in the Third Millennium BCE? Hunter-Gatherer Persistency and Human–Animal Relations in Southern Norway: The Alveberget Case

Abstract This essay aims to include novel findings from a Pitted Ware coastal site in Agder County, southern Norway, in the fourth and third millennium. To expand our understanding of the reasons behind cultural tenacity, we need to move beyond an image of elderly peoples as either ecologically aware or as economically efficient, as well as a worldview that acknowledges the fundamental importance of human-u2013animal relationships in prehistoric lives and worldviews. We maintain that an animist ontology survived among the Pitted Ware factions and praised the continuing persistency characterizing the third millennium in Southern Norway, drawing on findings from relational anthropology and multi-species archaeology.

Animist Time and the White Anthropocene

This essay explores the human body's Western civilisational ethos as a philosophy of awe with respect to the natural world. My own entry point into the discussion is through Afro-diasporic knowledge systems that have demonstrated the human being not embedded in the Western paradigm of the individual, which is a personal expression. I ask how such knowledge systems can help us to achieve a critical thinking revolution in reaction to the current dangers of our technological civilisation.

Animist Time and the White Anthropocene

This essay explores the human person's Western civilisational ethos as an ethos of rule with respect to the natural world. I ask how such knowledge systems can help us achieve a crucial thought revolution in response to our current technological civilization's greatest challenges. I emphasize the fact that animist thinking cultures have existed for centuries before modernity's violence and misticism, and that renewed inquiries into human living habits warrant renewed inquiry into their benefits in human living habits.

Reading Postcolonial Animals with the Animist Code: A Critique of “New” Materialist Animal Studies

This article discusses the challenges that animist materialism brings to reading methods in new materialist animal studies scholarship. Where Rosi Braidotti's vitalist materialism insists on a neoliteral, anti-metaphorical way of thinking about animals, Harry Garuba defines metaphor as a key feature of African material culture's animist materialist tradition. Animist materialism claims the very knowledge and worldviews that Cartesian, colonial humanism dismissed as mistrust and as a mark of inhumanity.
