Overview

This book explores the practices of a local missionary recruit Carl Christian Reindorf (1834-1917) of the Basel Mission in nineteenth century Gold Coast. Central to the aim is the search for practices that define Reindorf's relationship with local cultures within the constraints imposed by this external religious network of power. "Practices" are defined as types of discourse and actions involved in conveying information, commoditizing values, assumptions and bodies to establish dichotomies between the local and the foreign. The title "Colonial Subjectivity and Drawn Boundaries" brings the colonized subject to the fore to find out how he reacted to the socio-cultural changes arising from colonialism.
