Cultivating Discontinuity: Pentecostal Pedagogies of Yielding and Control
Brahinsky, Josh
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v44 n4 p399-422 Dec 2013
Exploring missionary study at an Assemblies of God Bible college through ethnography and training manuals demonstrates systematic pedagogies that cultivate sensory capabilities encouraging yielding, opening to rupture, and constraint. Ritual theory and the Anthropology of Christianity shift analytic scales to include "cultivation," a "third term" enabling simultaneous apprehension and consolidating of the oppositions (experience-doctrine, revival-church, or spontaneous rupture-restrained continuity) internal and central to Pentecostalism. Further, cultivation complicates valorizations of the disjunctive "event" as militant radical icon.
