Guest Editorial: The Spirit’s Voice from the Margin
Disentangling Australasian Pentecostalism from White Hegemony
Within the context of Australasian Pentecostalism, “white hegemony” is a phrase that may be considered controversial, oppositional, and perhaps even deliberately inflammatory. Hegemony itself is a term heavily contested in scholarship but is generally understood using its Gramscian definition as “domination by consent,” usually via the use of “subtle and inclusive power” rather than overt domination. In setting out a call for papers for this special issue, we deliberately chose not to provide a definition for this concept despite its titular inclusion, relying instead on contributors to respond in a manner they felt appropriate. The intention was to draw out the marginal voices in Australasian Pentecostalism and attempt to elicit honest responses from these contributors in relation to their positioning within the movement.
