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

ANTHROPOLOGY OF AESTHETICS

Aesthetics has remained one of the great mysteries of the human condition.Theories are endless, rooted in many disciplines and subdisciplines. Can anthropology define aesthetics in new ways, thus providing many theories with new fertile parameters?

Anthropology of Emotion

Anthopology holds at its core the question of what it is to be a thinking, feeling human being. Emotion and how it is portrayed and interpreted across cultures helps us to reflect on aspects of power, agency and belonging.

Treadwell's and Abraxas

Hi there everyone! This is a post to tell you about two awesome things that happened to me recently. No worries, they are anthropology related if not strictly so ;)

Last March I started volunteering for Treadwell's bookshop as well as for Abraxas journal. The two are strictly interlocked in as much as in 2009 Treadwell's owner Christina Harrington joined armies with Robert Ansell, director at Fulgur, one of the biggest esoteric publishers around, to create the marvel which is Abraxas…
