Workshop "Changes and Continuities in the Religious Landscape of Northeast India" on January 19-21, 2017

Venue: Don Bosco Institute, Kharghuli, Guwahati, India

This workshop explores the rapidly changing religious landscape of Northeast India through 1) examining how 'traditional' belief systems are being restructured to give rise to 'new' indigenous religions; and 2) analysing how vernacular indigenous myths and legends have influenced the practice and ritual processes of mainstream religions of the area (Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism). It aims to illuminate and comprehend the motivations behind such changes and their effects on practitioners' daily lives; to discover the linkages and correlations among emerging religious movements; and to determine the impacts that these contemporary forms of expression have on identity formulations within these ethnic communities. Examining these topics in context provides new ways to view and understand the methods by which societies in Northeast India strive to meet the demands of modernity, contributing to the scholarly analysis of post-colonial indigenous peoples.

Dr Maria Ines Palleiro loeng hirmu retoorikast usundilistes juttudes 15. detsembril 2016

Dr Maria Ines Palleiro (National Council for Scientific Research; Buenos Airese Ülikool, Argentiina) peab loengu "Rhetoric of threat in belief narratives: from personal experiences to political folklore" 15. detsembril, kell 12.15 (Ülikooli 16-214). Olete oodatud kuulama!

The aim is to identify the distinctive features of such rhetoric of threat, dealing with metaphoric identifications with political leaders and with a synechdotic logic of external or global dangers caused to individuals or local identities, that can be identified both in personal narratives, in urban legends and in political discourses. I will examine a personal narrative dealing with cancer which affects common citizens, an urban legend dealing with AIDS, and virtual narratives regarding cancer that has affected Latin American political leaders. My main hypothesis is that there is a thread that connects all these narratives, connected with a synechdotic logic which is a distinctive feature of "rhetoric of infection" connected with conspiracy theories.


Kutse: konverents "Deities, Spirits and Demons" 9.-10. novembril 2017

Department of Estonian and Comparative Folklore University of Tartu in co-operation with the Department of Department of Asian, African and Mediterranean Studies, "L'Orientale", University of Naples announces a call for papers for the workshop

Deities, Spirits and Demons in Vernacular Beliefs and Rituals in Asia

9-10 November 2017 – Tartu, Estonia

The study of religions in Asia has been increasingly expanding its spectrum of inquire into the kaleidoscopic realm of local traditions that are specific to a village or a lineage of transmission. Tradition-bearers and ritual experts master the heterogeneous corpus of vernacular beliefs and ritual practices about deities, spirits and demons as an essential part of the foundations of their authority in the community. Local classes of supernatural beings have often been marginalized, sometimes even demonized by institutionalised religions, yet they are alive in daily life in Asia and engage with social and political changes in their respective local and national contexts. Also, narratives about such beliefs transform, all the while evolving with the context wherein they emerge.
