Sacred. Place. to. an. Existential. Dimension. of. Mobility. Peter Nynas We
migrate from one place to another in search of a better life, for clean water and
food. We escape because it is dangerous to stay where we are. We are not
allowed to settle down, and are forced to move on. We are expatriated for the
benefit of various organisations. We travel for temporary enjoyment, to refresh the
body and the soul. Mobility cannot be generalised, or as Siikala (2001a: 40)

These symbolic geographies of the sacred relate to the ways in which
worshippers and religious experts/leaders define, produce, or imagine translocal
fields of religious presence, flows, and mobility. While the processes of physical
or symbolic place-making and territorialization are integral to the constitution of
these geographies, I wish to consider how a “diasporic sense of place”3
challenges fixed notions of territory and territorial identity. Indeed as Brenner (
1999) argued this notion ...

Magic and Medicine from East to West "Craftsmen of the Sacred": Mobility and
Family Structure Seers and doctors are the first enumerated by Homer as migrant
"craftsmen," individuals whom a community would be concerned to attract. They
are specialists of a particular kind, having their art — techne — which no one else
can master. Seers and doctors appear closely connected, at least in the period
preceding the "Hippocratic" era. The change is documented in the fifth-century ...

Integration is a critical step in the process of enculturation of ethnic groups, but
some groups take the process much further and seek upward social mobility.
Jews have been upwardly mobile in Western society over the last 150 years, and
case studies of Jewish social mobility in New York City and Pittsburgh (
Pennsylvania) illustrate the theme. Between 1880 and 1914 some 23 million
European immigrants entered America, 17 million of them through New York City.
Although they ...

Kusakabe, Smita Mishra Panda, Yunxian Wang. 'Space, whether sacred or
profane, is not produced in vacuum, but rather through a web of crosscutting
power relations that are themselves forged at multiple scales from the local to the
global' (Massey cited in Secor 2002, 7). In order to build up a mobility profile of
the developing world, the research arena provides a good foundation to
enumerate the ...
