Anikó Sebestény

Title : "Daily Domestic Offerings versus Tourism in Bali"
Date, Time, Place : 03/05/2013, 4pm, Salle de Réunion du Pavillon Jardin

Abstract :
In this talk, I will present the main ideas of my PhD work on daily offerings in Bali. Drawing on both my education and experience as anthropologist wh o did "real" fieldwork, and my education in cognitive sciences, I am presenting a case study about Balinese domestic rituals.
Is the small o  ffering basket presented dail y in every Balinese home a "priming device" creating religious context tha  t contributed to the perpetuation of Balinese religious traditions despite the general presence of tourism in Bali ?
