Surviving Iconoclasm

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the tension in knowledge distribution and management that maps out the cultural life of Baga today, introducing three groups of actors (the initiated elders, people living in the capital, and women). These three groups of stakeholders, together with today’ young people, are crucial in understanding the long-term effects of the iconoclasm analysed in the previous chapters.

Keywords: knowledge distribution; Baga cultural life; elders; women; young people; iconoclasm
