Navarātri Seminar

Statement of Purpose: 

This Seminar seeks to study the festival of Navarātri from multiple geographical regions and historical periods and from a variety of methodological and theoretical perspectives. Our seminar seeks to take seriously how enactment and performance during Navarātri meaningfully shapes social worlds for its participants and gives us insights into the dynamicity of religious traditions. Over the course of the five-year seminar, Navarātri will be our extended case study through which questions of religious change, performance, ritual timing, transnational migration, affect, etc. can be investigated.

Call for Papers: 

The Navarātri Seminar is currently seeking paper proposal submissions for a panel that addresses:

● Navarātri in Transnational Hinduism (Co-sponsored with North American Hinduism Unit)
As part of our mission, the Navarātri Seminar seeks to study the festival of Navarātri from multiple geographical regions and historical periods and from a variety of methodological and theoretical perspectives. We, therefore, encourage papers that cover a range of traditions, regions, and languages in which Navarātri is celebrated.
