Panel BH23: NON-HUMAN AND HUMAN BEINGS AND THEIR ENTANGLEMENTS WITHIN MUSLIM MILIEUX

Convenor: Araceli Gonzalez-Vazquez (Laboratoire d´Anthropologie Sociale, Collège de France)

Short Abstract:
This panel aims at promoting a broad discussion on non-human and human beings and their entanglements within Muslim milieux.

Long Abstract:
The anthropology of Muslim milieux involves the study of very different issues in the treatment of the relations between humans and non-humans. Interestingly, academic research has a long history of engagement with the analysis of the co-existence of Muslim humans and non-human beings. This panel engages with recent (re)thinking of human and non-human agencies (Descola, Haraway, Ingold, Latour, Strathern, Viveiros de Castro, etc.) in order to focus on an anthropology of alterity and an anthropology of the mingling of creative agents (Deleuze and Guattari, 1987: 241-242; Kirksey and Helmreich 2010:546). Willing to adhere to recent scholarship which promotes the exploitaition of ethnography, ethnohistory and ethnoarchaeology´s potential for (re)thinking alterity, it attempts to explore the role of religious discourses and practices in the shaping of human and nonhuman relations.
The panel aims at reflecting on the ontological tensions between different forms of being. A merely orientative and non-exhaustive list includes humans, animals, jnun, angels, shayatin, ´afarit, Iblis, Shaytan,… One of the main goals of this panel would be to reflect on the voice and agency of the non-human.

The panel will host accounts and reflections concerning the relationship of humans and non-humans in Muslim milieux. Not restricted to: understandings of human and non-human natures/selves, kinship relationships between human and non-humans, bodies, experiences, embodiment, emplacement, discourses, practices, narratives, self-narratives, memories, representations, mimesis, performances, topologies, technologies of the self, ontological tensions, boundaries, continuities, discontinuities, affects, emotions, materialities, traits, traces, etc.

Please note that the new deadline for paper proposals is August 3rd, 2012. Paper proposals must be made via the online system, and not via email. Proposals should be submitted through the 'Propose a paper' link on the panel´s page of the IUAES website (paper title + short paper abstract under 300 characters including spaces + long paper abstract of 250 words):
