Résumé

O colóquio internacional "Sacred Tourism, Secular Pilgrimage. Travel and Transformation in the 21st century" irá decorrer no ISCTE-IUL, em Lisboa, de 7 a 11 de Julho de 2011.

Annonce

An international symposium organized by researchers of the CRIA (Centre for Research in Anthropology) and the CIDEHUS (University of Évora), 'Sacred Tourism, Secular Pilgrimage' aims to revisit and build upon the extant theory on the relationship between pilgrimage and tourism, religious-motivated and ‘secular’ travel, by focusing on the transformational aspects of these practices.

The symposium proposes to bring together well-established scholars and younger researchers of different academic backgrounds – namely, the United States, Canada, Portugal, Spain, France and the UK – to reassess these topics in the light of their recent ethnographic work and research methodologies.

It also proposes to draw upon a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, ranging from social and cultural anthropology to history, social theory and cultural studies. The diversity in approaches, together with the geographical and cultural variety of the speakers’ fieldworks (which stretches from the Mediterranean and North Africa to Latin America and Asia), will no doubt result in a stimulating exchange of ideas and experiences.

The symposium’s ultimate aim is the production of a joint, peer-reviewed book that reflects the historical changes and theoretical advances that have taken place in the fields of tourism, pilgrimage and their many actual and metaphorical intersections.
