Hi, I'm the new member. I'm going from Portugal to Columbia University, Dep. of Religion, as associate member. My research project is on Brazilian Immigration and Pentecostalism in New York City. I would like to contact anthropologist with the same focus and others issues on religion.

In time now so long ago that it seems like another galaxy, I was a student of Victor Turner and wrote a dissertation titled "The Symbolism of Popular Taoist Magic." That research led to an article in the Journal of Chinese Religions, "Why don't we see some real money here? Offerings in Chinese religion," then my one contribution to American Ethnologist (February 1995) "Negotiating with demons: The uses of magical language." More recently there is a chapter on traditional Chinese religions in Ray Scupin, ed., Religion and Culture, An Anthropological Focus. My current research focus, however, is Japanese advertising. A former e-mail signature sums up the career: In Taiwan I studied magicians, in Japan I joined the guild. Anyway, I've joined up to learn what interests people these days.
