The Making of the Pentecostal Melodrama: Religion, Media and Gender in Kinshasa

The Making of the Pentecostal Melodrama: Religion, Media and Gender in Kinshasa

How religion, gender, and urban sociality are expressed in and mediated via television drama in Kinshasa is the focus of this ethnographic study. Influenced by Nigerian films and intimately related to the emergence of a charismatic Christian scene, these teleserials integrate melodrama, conversion narratives, Christian songs, sermons, testimonies, and deliverance rituals to produce commentaries on what it means to be an inhabitant of Kinshasa.
