2009 (English)In: Anthropology and Humanism, ISSN 1559-9167, E-ISSN 1548-1409, Vol. 34, no 1, p. 61-70Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article discusses the role of rumors in everyday Acholi life in war‐torn northern Uganda. These rumors concern various health threats such as HIV and Ebola. The rumors are closely associated with the forces of domination that are alleged to destroy female sexuality and women's reproductive health and, by extension, Acholi humanity. Moreover, the rumors are stories that say something profound about lived entrapments and political asymmetries in Uganda and beyond.
