Marie-Josée Blanchard

Assistant Professor
St. Francis Xavier University
Participates in 1 Session

Marie-Josée Blanchard holds a B.A. in Psychology (University of Moncton) and an M.A. in Religious Studies (University of Ottawa), and recently completed an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in the Humanities at Concordia University in Montreal. She is also a member of the Center for Sensory Studies (CSS). Her research interests focus on the intersection between Hinduism, devotion, classical Indian dance, Indian aesthetics, culture, emotions and the senses, and more recently on extrasensory experiences and alternative religions/spiritualities. Marie-Josée’s PhD project explored the sensory and emotional nature of the notion of rasa in Bharatanātyam, a classical Indian dance-drama (among many) that has been through a cultural renewal in the past century. Her most recent publication explored the role of participant sensation (as an alternative to participant observation) as a key method in ethnographic work, anthropology and the performing arts.
