CFP: [General] Topographies of Arrival in Pilgrimage as Ritual, Theatre, and Literature.

Tuesday, October 30, 2007 - 11:04am
Gert Hofmann

Each arrival presupposes a departure. Who ever sets out on a journey
seeks to re-enact the sacredness, the enthusing power, of the places of
his/her arrival, be it profane or religious. In order to capture such an
experience, in order to live through the moment of arrival as a
meaningful caesura, as a moment of exception, a moment of relief from the
time-bound conditions of regular life, preparation is necessary.
