Ritual today can be encountered in the midst of catastrophic and transforming events. The essays collected here reassess and revise traditionally understood relationships between ritual and politics, ritual and everyday life, ritual and art making as well as ritual and disaster. The methodologies as well as subject matter are interdisciplinary: they range from the anthropological to the art and dance historical, from the theatrical and literary to the linguistic, philosophical, and psychoanalytic.
