> DESCRIPTION

A talk by Professor Michael Taussig (Dept. of Anthropology, Columbia University) who is one of the most innovative, distinguished and socially engaged voices in cultural anthropology. An interdisciplinary thinker and engaging writer, Taussig's work combines aspects of ethnography, story-telling, and social theory. An area of long standing interest, Taussig will be discussing aspects of Latin American Ayahuasca-based Shamanism and its historical interface with Western magic.

Jesse Bransford and Karsten Krejcarek will discuss their experiences at the  2007 Conference on Amazonian Shamanism in Iquitos, Peru. Since returning, both have spent much time trying to articulate what exactly happened there and hope to do so in a public conversation. Topics will include globalization, adventure narratives, monkeys, and telepathy.
