9780521835916: Museums, Anthropology and Imperial Exchange

Amiria Henare demonstrates that the collection of artefacts and their formal study, both in museums and in the field, have been central anthropological strategies over the past two centuries. Henare's pioneering work traces the movement across space and time of objects now held in contemporary collections. Using evidence from across the former British Empire, she demonstrates how and why things were bought, exchanged and stolen, and carried across the oceans to reach their final institutional settings.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Amiria Henare explores the role of material cultural research in anthropology and related disciplines from the late eighteenth century to the present. Grounded in a historical ethnography of museums in New Zealand and Scotland, the work traces the movement of artefacts now held in contemporary collections through space and time, demonstrating how and why things were bought, exchanged and stolen and carried across oceans to arrive in present-day museums. The collecting of artefacts and their study both in museums and the the field are emphasised as key strategies in the development of anthropological thought, While much late twentieth-century writing in anthropology has employed analytic models and methodologies derived from the study of language, this work belongs to a growing body of research drawing on the epistemological potency of artefacts, the distinctive insights afforded by engagement with material things.
