Speaker: Mahmoud Mohammad Alhirthani (Associate Professor of Translation, Alaqsa University, Gaza)
This talk intends to map, from a semiotic perspective, the interconnections between ethnography, translation, and pilgrimage, by exploring the contemporary practice and revitalisation of a premodern ascetic pilgrimage in Katsuragi, linked to the twenty-eight sutra mounds of the Lotus Sutra (Katsuragi nijūhasshuku no kyōzuka).
