Pilgrimage in the Age of Globalisation Constructions of the Sacred and Secular in Late Modernity

Innbundet / 2012 / Engelsk
This edited collection brings together a series of ethnographically grounded studies on sacred and secular pilgrimage in the age of globalisation from around the world. Pilgrimage is explored as a distinctive form of mobility in late modernity, which emphasises inner transformation. Thus, the studies in this volume show how pilgrimage unifies physical and metaphysical mobility into a holistic project of self-realisation through motion.

"Nelia Hyndman-Rizk engages thoughtfully and constructively with the `mobility turn' in social sciences and what light this can throw on pilgrimage's distinctiveness as a form of mobility in `late-modern' conditions. The chapters complement this approach through their explorations of the global and transnational flows of people, ideas and information and how those flows engage with local social, cultural/religious and political structures and processes. The volume also helps us to look beyond particular regions to the connections between regions around the world. Since most of the contributors have been trained in anthropology they engage productively in the analytical models which have shaped the anthropological study of pilgrimage and to which I have had the good fortune to contribute through my collaboration with Michael Sallnow and Simon Coleman. I am sure readers will find this volume not only informative but also intellectually stimulating. It makes a welcome contribution to our understanding of this multi-facetted, complex and global phenomenon."- John Eade, University of Roehampton/University College London
