The inner and outer selves [Texte imprimé] : cosmology, gender, and ecology at the Himalayan borders /

de Channa, Subhadra Mitra (aut.)
Collation: 1 vol. (xiii-318 p.) : couv. et jaquette ill. en coul. ; 23 cm.Édition: New Delhi : Oxford University press, 2013, cop. 2013.ISBN: 9780198079422 (rel); 0198079427 (rel).Contenu: The Inner and Outer Selves is an ethnographic study on a small group of pastoralists and erstwhile trans-border traders in the Himalayas, the Jad Bhotiyas. It presents an anthropological perspective on trans- border trade and the changing locus of identity in the aftermath of the Indo-Tibetan border closure. From the study of a small community, the book deliberates on the more universal concepts of nationalism, identity, democracy, and borders between self and others-both metaphoric and real. The book discusses the qualitative aspects of the lives of men and especially women, their world-view, aspirations, and adaptation to the changing environment ; This monograph also focuses on how in constructing their identity, the Bhotiyas relate to and navigate their physical surroundings and conceptualize the surrounding ecological landscape in their livesSujet RAMEAU: Ethnologie Himalaya | Bhotia (peuple tibétain) Moeurs et coutumesSujet géographique RAMEAU: Inde Frontières Chine | Chine Frontières IndeThématique spécifique: Sel | Ecologie | Nationalisme | Cosmologie | Frontières | Ethnicité | Identité | Genre (sciences sociales) | PastoralismeGéographique: Garhwal | Himalaya | Tibet | Uttarkashi | IndeType de document: OuvrageLangue du document: anglaisPays d'édition: IndeNote: Bibliogr. p. 283-308.
