Shrines, rituals and processions in Pakistan:
Sehwan Sharif as a ritual city


Abstract:

In the book she has published in 1994, Paula Sanders has coined Fatimid Cairo as a ritual city. I wish to use this concept for the much more restricted urban space of Sehwan Sharif, in South-East Pakistan. Therefore, following Sanders, I shall look at how Sehwan was constructed through topography, shrines and ceremonies as a ritual city, how this ritual city was transformed over time and how the new meanings it acquired were in turn exploited to articulate changing social, religious, and finally political commitments.
