The “Anchor Point” Theory of Action: Music, time and space among the Kotas of South India

Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Richard Kent Wolf am Montag, den 22.06.09 im Oberseminar


Am Montag, den 22. 06. 2009 referiert Prof. Dr. Richard Kent Wolf im Oberseminar über die Kotas Südindiens.

"A black cow leads the members of a South Indian hill tribe, the Kotas, to the Nilgiri Hills and, with its hoof, indicates where to found each village. This footprint acts as a moral center of gravity, an important place for music-making, dancing, and other rituals. Places such as this, and moments in time, serve as physical and moral "anchors" for the Kota community. In this book, Richard K. Wolf explores how the Kotas "anchor" their musical and other activities around places and significant moments in time and, in the process, constitute themselves as individuals and as a group."
