Proposed panel for the AFS/FSAC 2007 annual meeting on "The Politics and Practices of Intangible Cultural Heritage", October 17-21, Hilton Hotel, Quebec City, Canada.
In regard to the cultural practices and traditions included in the UNESCO Convention for the Preservation of Intangible Cultural Heritage (rituals, beliefs, customs, music, festivals, storytelling, cuisine and traditional knowledge), we invite proposals that explore their carnal dimension involved in the staging and transmission of these practices and traditions.
Some possible themes:
Material flesh and metaphorical flesh: aspects of carnality in intangible cultural heritage
The (visual, tactile, savory, aural, olfactory) sensorialities of intangible cultural heritage
Memory and cultural heritage: incarnations, disincarnations, reincarnations
In accordance with the AFS electronic registration form (http://www.afsnet.org/annualmeet/index.cfm ), proposals must include a short abstract (75-100 words) and a long abstract (350-500 words). Please submit your proposals by March 15, 2007 to Vincent Auzas and Van Troi Tran at: firstname.lastname@example.org
As you submit your abstracts, please indicate if you have audiovisual needs (overhead projector; DVD/VHS player etc.)
Any incomplete or late proposal will be dismissed.
