Résumé Mademoiselle Anne-Pauline Gilbert part à Tahiti en 1926 envoyée par la Société des missions évangéliques de Paris comme institutrice bénévole. Elle tient un journal, intitulé « Récit de voyage et de premières impressions d’une institutrice missionnaire à Tahiti » pendant les dix-huit premiers mois, qui est à mi-chemin entre le journal intime, le récit de voyage et le compte rendu missionnaire. La lecture de ce journal permet d’une part de mieux comprendre les motivations des femmes missionnaires occidentales. Il montre d’autre part la prégnance des stéréotypes culturels et sexués, la volonté et la difficulté de les dépasser ou de s’en accommoder. La position marginale et le regard décalé d’Anne-Pauline Gilbert permettent enfin de mieux comprendre l’imbrication des hiérarchies de sexe et de « race » constitutives des dynamiques missionnaires pendant l’entre-deux-guerres. Miss Anne-Pauline Gilbert arrived in Tahiti in 1926, as a volunteer teacher sent by the Paris Evangelical Missionary Society. During her first 18 months, she kept a diary entitled “An account of the journey and first impressions of a missionary teacher in Tahiti” which is halfway between a travel book and a missionary report. The reading of this diary helps a better understanding of the motivations of Western missionary women. It also shows the influence of cultural and gender stereotypes, a willingness to overcome them, or to cope with them, and adapt to them. The marginal position of Anne-Pauline Gilbert and her misaligned point of view throw light on the intertwining of gender and “race” hierarchies in missionary dynamics during the inter-war years.
