"Asie du Sud - Himalaya" Workshop (in French), Thursday 6 May 2021, 5.30pm

with guest speaker Pascale Dollfus (CNRS-CEH)

The spirit world of the Shertukpens, a small society in the Indian Himalayas

The Shertukpens – a population of about 3,500 – are one of the many populations living in the Western Kameng district of the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. Divided into a dozen villages and hamlets, they occupy a vast territory stretching over 3,000 metres from the plains of Assam in the south to the pine and rhododendron-covered mountains in the north.

In this paper, I present the different categories of spirits with which they cohabit willy-nilly, the criteria according to which they are locally defined, as well as their course of action.

We look forward to seeing you at the usual online address at 5.30pm : Join conversation
- The following session is scheduled for 20 May with guest speaker :
