Reply-To: An H-Net List for the Society for the Anthropology of
International, interdisciplinary, translocal symposium 'Environmental
Studies of Shamanism and Other Traditional Magico-Medical Knowledge' is
organized by the colleagues from the institute of Ethnology and
Anthropology in Moscow, with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, Mill
Valley, as co-organizers.
The symposium will bring together Russian and foreign students of
traditional magico-medical practices with the shamanic practitioners
from Russia and from some traditional native groups.
These practitioners will give talks and demonstrations of their
practices within the framework of the sessions, but they will also
receive the symposium participants on their home grounds, in their
'shamanic centers' in the capitals of the 'autonomous republics'.
The route of the symposium is Moscow-Abakan (Khakassia)-Kyzyl
(Tuva)-Novosibirsk. An outstanding feature of this conference is the
participation of Russian physicists, computer engineers, and other 'hard
science' people, who, with the full consent of the shamanic
practitioners, will try to examine them during their seances with the
help of various ingenious newly invented devices.
This cooperation between ethnologists, physicists and native
practitioners is a fascinating feature of contemporary Russian research
in the subject, of which very little is known in the West.
The time of the symposium: July 2000.
Conference fee: 200 dollars (approximately)
Deadline for expressing your interest is December 1, 2000.
(I don't think that giving a paper is necessary for foreign guests in
order to participate).
