Product description

Objects and Others : Essays on Museums and Material Culture. History of Anthropology : Volume 3

A clean reprint copy of this collection of nine essays on the central role museums played in the development of anthropology from 1850 to 1920, and the important political and philosophical issues in considering the future of these institutions.

Wraps have slight shelfwear, indents to front. Spine uncreased. Neat owner name ffep; otherwise internally unmarked. viii + 258pp; b&w illus.

History of Anthropology is a series of annual volumes, inaugurated in 1983, each of which treats an important theme in the history of anthropological inquiry. Objects and Others , the third volume, focuses on a number of questions relating to the history of museums and material culture studies: the interaction of museum arrangement and anthropological theory; the tension between anthropological research and popular education; the contribution of museum ethnography to aesthetic practice; the relationship of humanistic and anthropological culture, and of ethnic artifact and fine art; and, more generally, the representation of culture in material objects. As the first work to cover the development of museum anthropology since the mid-nineteenth century, it will be of great interest and value not only to anthropologist, museologists, and historians of science and the social sciences, but also to those interested in "primitive" art and its reception in the Western world.
