South of Italy, Tarantism and Possession

Hi there everyone!I write to you today as I would like to ask you something: I am currently looking into the southern italian phenomenon of Tarantismo (De Martino, Mingozzi, Annabella Rossi and the whole lot). There is plenty of material out there and it's all very good but it has been used and re-used in a million different editions already and unfortunately it wouldn't serve my purpose to use modern/readily available materia. I am after some pictures/videos from 1950s-1970s specifically. Is…See More

"Thank you Tomas!The book is fantastic. I particularly liked the idea of 'commitment to research' expressed by surrealism which Ades points out.  "

"Studies of culture shock point to what has been called the "W curve." It begins with the excited wonder you describe. Then frustration and feelings of helplessness can lead to depression. Learning enough to begin to interact comfortably…"

Surrealism summaries anthropologists sense of amazement

This is a new thought and I would really like to know what you think about it: when an anthropologist goes away to do fieldwork the initial sense is quite often of confusion, cultural displacement and excited wonder. I believe this is not being patronising. I is simply the adjustment of the individual to new stimuli, cultural patterns and ways of life. The preferred medium through which anthropologists can communicate this sense of reverent bemusement is writing and there are good reasons for…See More

"What a beautiful piece! I have dived into the concept of 'the constructed other myself' especially as concerning the 'Idea of Africa'. Thank you for such a pleasant read!"
