Handmade in Nepal

(p.185) Chapter 10 Handmade in Nepal
Theorizing the Local

David Henderson

Oxford University Press

This chapter alternates between a study of drumming lessons in the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal and a consideration of studies of bodily knowledge, or what is sometimes called procedural knowledge, by three different kinds of scholars: the neurologist Antonio Damasio, the philosopher David Sudnow, and the anthropologist Michael Herzfeld. On one hand, it is an analysis, written ethnographically and phenomenologically, of how drumming becomes lodged in memory and in the body, and, on the other hand, it is a rumination, prompted partly by Herzfeld's work, on the place of outmoded artisan and artistic work in the modern nation-state.

Keywords:   memory, modernity, ethnography, phenomenology, procedural knowledge, drumming, Nepal
