      The following is a symposium scheduled to coincide with the visit of His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche to Ottawa Canada this May.  Papers dealing with the way knowledge is transmitted through ritual, based on any religious tradition are welcome.

      Symposium: Knowledge and Ritual
      Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada
      May 19-20, 2000

      This symposium is sponsored by Carleton University's Departments of Anthropology and Religion; the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences; and the College of the Humanities. It will be held in conjunction with a presentation of traditional Tibetan Sacred Arts at the Canadian Museum of Civilization - these will include the construction of a sand mandala, torma sculpture, thanka painting and the Black Hat Lama dance. His Holiness, Pema Norbu Rinpoche, Head of the Nyingma, the oldest school of Tibetan Buddhism, will preside over ceremonies relating to the cultural exhibition at the Museum. He has also been invited to formally open the symposium and one of his foremost scholar/monks, Khenpo Tsewang Gyatso, will give the keynote address.

      The organizers welcome papers relating to any religious/spiritual tradition dealing with "Knowledge and Ritual" - the pedagogics of performance, the epistemology of ritual.
