Museum, Field, Metropolis, Colony: Practices of Social Governance
This project studies early twentieth-century museums in Australia, Europe, North America and New Zealand. It investigates the new relationships between museums, anthropological fieldwork and social governance that emerged over this period. What roles did anthropology museum collections play in metropolitan public spheres? What roles did they play in relation to the governance of colonised populations? How did these roles vary across different colonial contexts? In addressing these questions the project explores their relevance to contemporary debates and practices focused on the relations between museums and Indigenous peoples. It is assisted in this by an Indigenous Advisory Committee in Australia and an Indigenous Reference Group in New Zealand.
