L’espace du pèlerinage comme territoire circulatoire : Sehwan Sharif le long de l’Indus

Abstract : As a religious and circulatory phenomenon, pilgrimage is one of the key models of spatial mobility. Besides the main pilgrimage to Mecca prescribed by a normative Islam, numerous visits are also paid to secondary places of worship, sheltering in most cases the tomb of a saint or his relics. How can we describe the space of pilgrimage through the paradigm of mobility ? The study of a mass pilgrimage in Pakistan will enable us to assess the contribution of the notion of “circulatory territory”, as defined by the sociologist Alain Tarrius in the field of migration studies. The small locality of Sehwan can then be considered as a crossroads of mobilities and as a space mediating relationships with otherness.
