Social Imaginaries of the Divine: Selves, Spaces, and Simulation in Kancipuram M.D.Muthukumaraswamy This research project intends to study the non-textual folk religious practices of small shrines and temples situated in the vicinity of larger classical Hindu temples in Kanchipuram. Investigating the social imaginaries of the divine embedded in the religious practices of everyday life, festivities, and rituals associated with the selected folk deities of Kanchipuram this ethnographic research project aims to unravel the relationships between perceived self-hoods, spatial organizations, and imitated behavior in folk religious activities. Extensive documentation of folklore surrounding selected folk deities of Kanchipuram and the subsequent archiving of documented materials at the University of Oslo as part of the project are proposed.
