The next ARCH/Toit du Monde evening will take place with Clément Jacquemond (ATER-EPHE) who will speak on the theme:
From shamanism to shamanisms?
Perspectives on religious dynamics in the Russian Altai
This presentation provides an overview of religious practices in the Russian Altai. This region of southern Siberia, best known for the shamanism of its natives, is also historically a crossroads of cultural exchange and the meeting point of many religious currents, which has earned it the nickname "Palestine of Asia". How did the systems of representations and practices interact over time, and how did these interactions shape the pre- and post-Soviet indigenous religion? The presentation will review the different historical processes of the Altai religious and will question its contemporary socio-political dimensions.
This evening will take place on Thursday 23 February 2023 at 6pm by ZOOM:
