This announcement is a call-for-papers for the panel 'Death, materiality and the person in Afro-Caribbean religions', at the SIEF (Societé Interacional pour l'Etnologie y du Folkore) conference in April (17-21) 2011, Lisbon. This panel will seek to examine materiality as a constitutive aspect of self, namely, through the lens of death. The question we will be specifically raising is how to relate the materiality of death practices and traditions to understandings of personhood in Afro-Caribbean religions.
To submit an abstract, or for more information on the conference - entitled 'People Make Places', please visit SIEF's webpage via the link provided.
