Religious practice and belief remain astoundingly diverse across North and South America. At a time when globalization is taken to mean the ever greater homogenization of cultures, Performing Religion in the Americas reveals how individual cultures are more resilient than ever and that religion is a particularly rich area of diversity.

Religion is an especially rich arena for the analysis of political and cultural performance because the complexity of devotional practice and the intensity of faith can permeate all other parts of social life. The performance of religion highlights how communities and individuals in the Americas define themselves as both similar to and different from others.

Presenting detailed ethnographies from Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Canada, and the United States and drawing on a wide range of approaches - from Theater, Comparative Literature, Sociology, Anthropology, History, English, and Performance Studies - Performing Religion in the Americas reveals the breadth of faith-based cultural practice in the 21st Century.

Book Description Seagull Books, 2007. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Each contribution illuminating one particular arena of religiosity in the Americas, these essays reveal that the multiple phenomena that can be lumped under the category "religiosity" are in fact astoundingly diverse. While several authors signal practices understood by the clergy to be heterodox, contemporary scholars reject the binary of `orthodox` versus `popular` religiosity. Rather, what happens to be considered heterodox or orthodox at any given moment or place is ever-shifting and never separate from other movements, collective notions and power dynamics in society. We see religiosity as one particularly rich arena for the analysis of social, political and cultural practices, illuminating transformations in the realm of devotional practices, but also spilling over into all other areas of social life. Because of the ways that religion involves both narrative and meta-narrative, practice and reflection, perhaps more than any other aspect of life, it is an excellent way of examining how communities and individuals in the Americas performatively and discursively constitute themselves. Further, religion is a lens-a privileged one at that-for getting at the globalizing late capitalist world`s intersections of power, money, cultural practices and repertoires. Printed Pages: 250.
