In cooperation with the Research project Reassembling Democracy: Rituals as Cultural Resource (REDO) at Faculty of Theology, UiO, we arrange a guest lecture and seminar on film, ritual and sacrifice on May 26-27.
April 25 we gather again for the second seminar in the series on Deleuze and ethnography.
The sub-theme of ritual practices will arrange two seminars about Deleuzian philosophy and ethnography.
The first seminar will take place 11. December 2013.
The seminar will consist of two presentations: Morten Nielsen from Aarhus University and Knut Christian Myhre from University of Oslo.
These presentations will be followed by a more general and open discussion, for the sake of which seminar participants are expected to acquaint themselves with a few relevant titles beforehand (please see the complete reading list).
