In this conference, we would like to examine implications of the ‘spatial turn’ for the humanities. In particular, we look at the possible impact of new considerations of space on the disciplines represented at our institute: Asian studies, Middle Eastern studies, cultural studies, and the study of religion(s). We welcome papers on a variety of topics, as long as they relate to our central topic. We particularly would like to invite (post)graduate students and young (postdoc) researchers to present papers on the spatial aspects of their own research.

by Ronald Grimes.

When a priest celebrates mass or does puja, is he performing? When a Balinese dancer or Norwegian skier rubs a brass medallion before every dance or game, is she ritualizing? If you attend a seminar on an arcane academic topic like “performativity and ritual,” are you ritualizing or performing? Maybe both? Neither? Does your answer to this question depend on your attitude? Does it depend on whether or not you arrive well prepared? Whether or not you are attending in order to be seen by others? Whether or not the speaker reads a paper or improvises? If you are not sure, read Grimes, “Religion, Ritual, and Performance” from Religion, Theatre, and Performance and Grimes, “Fiddling with Fiddler” from Rite Out of Place. Then join us as we work together on interpreting some filmed examples.
