IIAS Lunch Lecture

In July 2016, Sinhalese and Tamil students at Jaffna University clashed violently over the introduction of ves dance, which is considered to be Sinhalese Buddhist heritage, as a welcoming ceremony for new students. In this lecture, Eva Ambos discusses the centrality of dance in Sri Lanka to map ethnic difference, focusing on the heritagization of the ritual tradition from which ves dance originates. Drawing on material gathered during ethnographic fieldwork, Ambos advances the argument that heritage politics operate along similar lines as so-called sympathetic magic.
