XXII quinquennial conference of the *International Association for the
History of Religions (IAHR)*
University of Otago (Dunedin, New Zealand), 23-29 August 2020.

*Title of the Panel: *Tantra, Shamanism, and Magic: Experiences, Practices,
and Practitioners at the “Margins” of the Indic World

*Convenors:* Andrea Acri (EPHE, Paris) and Paolo E. Rosati (Independent
*Email:* paoloe.rosati at gmail.com / andrea.acri at ephe.psl.eu
*Deadline:* 5 December 2019

*Abstract:* Tantra, since the middle of the first millennium CE when it
made its first step in the Brahmanic religious folds, challenged the
dualistic view of the cosmos as an opposition between purity and impurity.
Through its ritual violation and subversion of what was perceived as
orthopraxy by the mainstream religions in many regions of Asia, Tantra
emerged as a source of power, which was closely related to the milieux at
the “margins” of Indic mainstream religions. Through a multidisciplinary
approach, this panel aims to shed light on experiences, practices and
practitioners which have been frequently alienated by the mainstream Indic
religions across South and Southeast Asia. Particular attention will be
paid to the cross- and trans- cultural dialectic between mainstream,
tantric, and intersecting magic-shamanic “marginal” phenomena across
history and geography, and their instantiations in textual corpora, myths,
folk and oral traditions, visual and performative arts, rituals, and

experiences (paper presentations, publications, academic degrees, etc.) *by
5 December 2019*.
