Long abstract:

This panel has been built up as an extension of panel P 204. The aim is to question the ways in which individual life-cycle or collective rituals and calendric festivals contribute to the emotional making of places. The ten case-studies in this panel will be grouped in three sessions. One on the sessions will be devoted to life-cycle rituals, specially focusing on youth, initiation rituals and weddings. Another session will concentrate on the ways rituals express identity in a social, political or religious perspective. The last session will examine religious rituals, both past and present, in the European context and abroad. The contributors in this panel are invited to join first panel P 204 for a plenary introduction by the convenor. Thanks to the convenor of panel P 204, a joint conclusion will also take place at the end of the panel, enabling to share the conclusions of both panel P 230 and P 204.
