Next evening class
In this presentation, Thea Skaanes tells a material story about Hadza religion and ritual generation of time. The Hadza have been used in academia as a relevant case-study for researching our common past, that is, the very human design. In such descriptions, the Hadza have been described as one of the least religious societies known, with a minimum of spiritual or symbolic practices. Along with others, such as Camilla Power, Skaanes argues that this assumption needs to be revised. During the evening, we will hear about material objects, rites of passage, men and women, spiritual transfers and how these are all anchored materially in the woman herself, in kinship and in the very generation of time.
