👤 Centre East Asian Studies (EASt)

📅 date limite : 20 juin 2023

The research will select one specific area/topic – it might be a region, a country, a local devotion or a specific practice – and explore, through ethnographic methods, how amulets or devotional medals are created, circulated, deciphered, blessed, addressed, worn, given sense, provided with a pedigree, empowered with positive achievements, and possibly discarded by those who use them. The applicant will also, in coordination with the promoter, create a corpus of reference of the relevant medals or talismans, which will enhance the research with a historical and numismatic dimension.
