I had a lovely time at the annual meeting of the Society for the Anthropology of Religion (( a society under the umbrella of the American Anthropological Association ))where I gave a short paper on women I met who came back from the dead – it’s actually pretty common enough in Cambodia. My paper went well enough, though I pretty seriously misjudged the amount of time I had (15 minutes instead of the standard 20 – ouch!).
There was an excellent address-The Roy Rappaport Lecture-by anthropologist Jean Comaroff, and I personally had a great time with my host and new friend Alberto Perez Pereiro, another Cambodian studies fiend and student of Cambodian religion. I’ll let him say more about his own work, should he choose.
Cheers to all, and to all a good…. Yes. I’m very tired.
