      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).
