26 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 2,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collected writings of Samson Occom, Mohegan : leadership and literature in eighteenth-century Native America by Samson Occom( )

18 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His letters, sermons, journals, prose, petitions, and hymns - many of them never before published - document the emergence of pantribal political consciousness among the Native peoples of New England as well as Native efforts to adapt Christianity as a tool of decolonization. Presenting previously unpublished and newly recovered writings, this collection offers a fascinating look into the mind and milieu of a charismatic Indian leader and public intellectual. At the same time, the publication of his full known corpus more than doubles the amount of available Native American writing from before 1800, thus providing a vital resource for scholars and students of history and Native American cultures."--Jacket

Why we left : untold stories and songs of America's first immigrants by Joanna Brooks( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joanna Brooks's ancestors were among the earliest waves of emigrants to leave England for North America. They lived hardscrabble lives for generations, eking out subsistence in one place after another as they moved forever westward in search of a new life. Why, Brooks wondered, did her people and countless other poor English subjects abandon their homeland to settle for such unremitting hardship? The question leads her on a journey into a largely obscured dimension of American history. With her family's background as a point of departure, Brooks brings to light the harsh realities behind seventeenth- and eighteenth-century working-class English emigration--and dismantles the long-cherished idea that these immigrants were drawn to America as a land of opportunity. American folk ballads provide a wealth of clues to the catastrophic contexts that propelled early English emigration to the Americas. Brooks follows these songs back across the Atlantic to find histories of economic displacement, environmental destruction, and social betrayal at the heart of the early Anglo-American migrant experience. The folk ballad "Edward," for instance, reveals the role of deforestation in the dislocation of early Anglo-American peasant immigrants; "Two Sisters" discloses the profound social destabilization unleashed by the advent of luxury goods in England; "The Golden Vanity" shows how common men and women viewed their own disposable position in England's imperial project; and "The House Carpenter's Wife" offers insights into the impact of economic instability and the colonial enterprise on women. From these often tragic ballads Brooks uncovers an archaeology of the worldviews of America's earliest immigrants, presenting a new and haunting historical perspective on the ancestors we thought we knew."--Jacket
Decolonizing Mormonism : approaching a postcolonial Zion by Mormonen( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume seeks nothing less than to shift the focus of Mormon studies from its historic North American, Euro-American "center" to the critical questions being raised by Mormons living at the movement's cultural and geographic margins. As a social institution, Mormonism is shaped around cultural notions, systems, and ideas that have currency in the United States but make less sense beyond the land of its genesis. Even as an avowedly international religion some 183 years out from its inception, it makes few allowances for diverse international contexts, with Salt Lake City prescribing programs, policies, curricula, leadership, and edicts for the church's international regions. While Mormonism's greatest strength is its organizational coherence, there is also a cost paid, for those at the church's peripheries. Decolonizing Mormonism brings together the work of 15 scholars from around the globe who critically reflect on global Mormon experiences and American-Mormon cultural imperialism. Indigenous, minority, and Global South Mormons ask in unison: what is the relationship between Mormonism and imperialism and where must the Mormon movement go in order to achieve its long-cherished dream of equality for all in Zion? Their stories are both heartbreaking and heartening and provide a rich resource for thinking about the future of Mormon missiology and the possibilities inherent in the work ofMormon contextual theology"--Provided by publisher

7 editions published between 2016 and 2020 in English and Chinese and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Face Zion forward" : first writers of the Black Atlantic, 1785-1798( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together for the first time the memoirs, sermons, and speeches of the early writers of the black Atlantic. At the close of the Revolutionary War, more than 3,000 black Loyalists, many liberated from slavery by enlisting in the British army, made exodus in 1783 from New York to Nova Scotia in search of land and freedom. Almost half of the emigrants settled an independent black community at Birchtown, Nova Scotia, where, despite extraordinarily harsh conditions, they established their own churches and schools, and cultivated a shared sense of themselves as a chosen people. A majority of the population emigrated once again in 1791, this time setting sail for Sierra Leone to fulfill what they perceived to be their prophetic destiny. This circuit of gathering, exodus, and diaspora was grounded in a unique black Atlantic theology focused on redemption and Zion that was conceptualized and shaped by the charismatic black evangelists of diverse Protestant faiths who converged in the Nova Scotia settlements. "Face Zion Forward" now brings together the remarkable writings of these early authors of the black Atlantic. This collection of memoirs, sermons, and speeches, many of which are based on the Birchtown experience, documents how John Marrant, David George, Boston King, and Prince Hall envisioned the role of Africa and African American communities in black liberation. The volume demonstrates that these men were both collaborators and contestants in the construction of modern post-slavery black identities, and shows how the frameworks of Christian theology and Freemasonry influenced ideas about emancipation and communal independence. The centerpiece of the work is The Journal of John Marrant, published here in its entirety for the first time since 1790. Marrant's missionary diary not only illuminates the intricacies of eighteenth-century African American Christianity, but also presents a richly detailed account of everyday life in Birchtown. "Face Zion Forward" provides an informed reconstruction of the major ideological and theological conversations that occurred among North American blacks after the American Revolution and illustrates the disparate and complex underpinnings of the modern black Atlantic. In addition, the work presents invaluable insights into African American literary traditions and the development of Ethiopianist and black nationalist discourses. - Publisher
Mormonism and white supremacy : American religion and the problem of racial innocence by Joanna Brooks( )

6 editions published in 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the role of white American Christianity in fostering and sustaining white supremacy. It draws from theology, critical race theory, and American religious history to make the argument that predominantly white Christian denominations have served as a venue for establishing white privilege and have conveyed to white believers a sense of moral innocence without requiring moral reckoning with the costs of anti-Black racism. To demonstrate these arguments, Brooks draws from Mormon history from the 1830s to the present, from an archive that includes speeches, historical documents, theological treatises, Sunday School curricula, and other documents of religious life"--

Samson Occom collected writings from a founder of Native American literature by Samson Occom( )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together for the first time the known writings of the pioneering Native American religious and political leader, intellectual, and author, Samson Occom (Mohegan; 1723-1792). The largest surviving archive of American Indian writing before Charles Eastman (Santee Sioux; 1858-1939), Occom's writings offer unparalleled views into a Native American intellectual and cultural universe in the era of colonialization and the early United States. His letters, sermons, journals, prose, petitions, and hymns--many of them never before published--document the emergence of pantribal politic
Saving Alex : when I was fifteen I told my Mormon parents I was gay, and that's when my nightmare began by Alex Cooper( Recording )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Days after Alex Cooper told her parents that she was gay, they drove Alex from their home in Southern California to Utah, where they signed over guardianship to fellow Mormons who promised to save Alex from her homosexuality. For eight harrowing months, Alex was held captive in an unlicensed 'residential treatment program', modeled on the many 'therapeutic' boot camps scattered across Utah. Alex was physically and verbally abused, and forced to stand facing a wall for up to eighteen hours a day wearing a heavy backpack full of rocks. 'God's plan does not apply to gay people', her captors told her, using faith to punish and terrorize her. With the help of a dedicated legal team in Salt Lake City, Alex would eventually escape and make legal history in Utah by winning the right to live under the law's protection as an openly gay teenager
The Book of Mormon girl : a memoir of an American faith by Joanna Brooks( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From her days of feeling like "a root beer among the Cokes"'Coca-Cola being a forbidden fruit for Mormon girls like her'Joanna Brooks always understood that being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints set her apart from others. But, in her eyes, that made her special; the devout LDS home she grew up in was filled with love, spirituality, and an emphasis on service. With Marie Osmond as her celebrity role model and plenty of Sunday School teachers to fill in the rest of the details, Joanna felt warmly embraced by the community that was such an integral part of her family. But as she grew older, Joanna began to wrestle with some tenets of her religion, including the Church's stance on women's rights and homosexuality. In 1993, when the Church excommunicated a group of feminists for speaking out about an LDS controversy, Joanna found herself searching for a way to live by the leadings of her heart and the faith she loved. The Book of Mormon Girl is a story about leaving behind the innocence of childhood belief and embracing the complications and heartbreaks that come to every adult life of faith. Joanna's journey through her faith explores a side of the religion that is rarely put on display: its humanity, its tenderness, its humor, its internal struggles. In Joanna's hands, the everyday experience of being a Mormon'without polygamy, without fundamentalism'unfolds in fascinating detail. With its revelations about a faith so often misunderstood and characterized by secrecy, The Book of Mormon Girl is a welcome advocate and necessary guide
Interviewing in qualitative research by Nigel King( Book )

Mormonism and white supremacy : American religion and the problem of racial innocence by Joanna Brooks( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To this day, churchgoing Mormons report that they hear from their fellow congregants in Sunday meetings that African-Americans are the accursed descendants of Cain whose spirits-due to their lack of spiritual mettle in a premortal existence-were destined to come to earth with a "curse" of black skin. This claim can be made in many Mormon Sunday Schools without fear of contradiction. You are more likely to encounter opposition if you argue that the ban on the ordination of Black Mormons was a product of human racism. Like most difficult subjects in Mormon history and practice, says Joanna Brooks, the priesthood and temple ban on Blacks has been managed carefully in LDS institutional settings with a combination of avoidance, denial, selective truth-telling, and determined silence. As America begins to come to terms with the costs of white privilege to Black lives, this book urges a soul-searching examination of the role American Christianity has played in sustaining everyday white supremacy by assuring white people of their innocence. In Mormonism and White Supremacy, Joanna Brooks offers an unflinching look at her own people's history and culture and finds in them lessons that will hit home for every scholar of American religion and person of faith

Interviews in qualitative research by Nigel King( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interviewing is used very widely in qualitative research, and takes many different forms. The qualitative interview is also a method that is constantly evolving, in response both to theoretical and technological developments. King and Horrocks present a clear and thorough guide to the use of interviews in contemporary qualitative research. Writing in an accessible style, with many practical examples, the authors explore: a) the key debates in the philosophy and theory underlying interview methods; b) how to design and carry out interviews; c) the special requirements of group and remote (telephone and online) interviewing; and d) the central issues of reflexivity and ethics. The book also features a chapter which introduces the principles and practice of the thematic analysis of interview data, and the book concludes with a detailed consideration of the use of interviews in two major qualitative research traditions: phenomenological and narrative approaches. -- Back cover
