国際ワークショップ開催(2021年10月30日:Zoomにて)


Research Center for Human Cultures - Nagoya City University October 30, 2021. Zoom seminar, 10 am - 12 pm (JST)

The Plural Body in Japanese Premodern Religions

This workshop starts from a fundamental question: How does religion interconnect with reality? If we recognize that religion is embedded in reality via bodies, then it is worth taking into account the modalities through which this embodiment actually takes place. Focusing on four different types of bodies in premodern Japanese religious discourse, the speakers provide a tracking shot of logics and practices associated with different types of physicality. The aim of these presentations is to let emerge the ontological ambiguity of the body for identifying it as a site of complexity and crisis, which permanently questions and, at the same time, expands the meaning of reality on the ground. In this workshop, human as well as non-human bodies are not analyzed as mere signifiers but as powerful actants that make reality by fostering hybridizations between apparently unrelated taxonomical sectors such as gods, politics, animality, asceticism, physical contests, and religious institutions.
