Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
In this doctoral dissertation the author examines ritual
and festival practices not as periodic interruptions in daily life but as integral, ongoing
processes of social engagement that aid in comprehending, negotiating and managing
inevitable upheavals in culture and identity caused by physical relocation of segments of
the population in an increasingly transnational socioeconomic system.
