Society for the Arts, Religion and Contemporary Culture (ARC)In conjunction with the Association for Religion + Intellectual Life (ARIL)
The National Building Museum, 401 F St. NW, Washington DC.
Saturday May 2nd, 1998
AYNI is a word from Quechua,
the language of the Inka empire, and the language of the present day millions of
Inka descendants who still inhabit the ghostly outlines of that conquered empire.
The word AYNI refers to the principle of reciprocity that governs all their social relations,
but AYNI is also an ontological premise about how the world is organized.
The ARC/ARIL conference will examine the subject broadly
and will include many forms of interacting duality in the art, myth, language,
and life of both the ancient and modern Andean worlds.
