Evaluating, adapting and transmitting rituals in religious and secular contexts: multi-disciplinary views


Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th June 2014

This colloquium aims to examining ritual experts' though processes; in other words, the process by which the officials question, develop and modify their ceremonial practices, whether before or after ritual performances or during the ritual itself. Is there an appropriate mechanism, context or set of conditions for these thoughts on ritual? These questions that ritual anthropologists so love will be examined through their application to religious and secular case studies and to different fields of social sciences: ethnology, political science, history, education science and sociology.
