EHESS ou Institut national du patrimoine
 
Apparu à la fin des années 2000 dans le monde anglo-saxon, le domaine des études critiques du patrimoine culturel, Critical Heritage Studies, s’est rapidement affirmé comme un espace international de réexamen critique des modalités pratiques et des théories qui structurent les activités patrimoniales. Il s’est développé aussi bien dans les espaces post-coloniaux que dans les pays occidentaux et dans les puissances économiques émergentes. En France, la réflexion et le débat sur le patrimoine culturel dans les sciences sociales s’est ouvert dès les années 1980 en prenant appui sur l’histoire, l’anthropologie, la géographie ou les sciences de l’information. Le séminaire se propose de mener une réflexion comparative et interdisciplinaire sur les épistémologies, la réception et l’actualité des Critical Heritage Studies au vu de cette histoire parallèle singulière. La France semble constituer une tradition intellectuelle à la fois avancée et diversifiée sur le plan de la littérature sur le patrimoine culturel, mais finalement assez périphérique, puisque l’on note des spécificités et un certain isolement de la perspective française dans le débat international. Il s’agira d’ouvrir un espace d’interrogation intellectuelle sur l’histoire récente des études sur le patrimoine culturel et de penser les modalités concrètes d’interaction entre le champ international et les dossiers de recherche en cours dans la sphère nationale, indépendamment de leur terrain géographique ou de la période historique considérée.
Ces séances mensuelles verront alterner des présentations théoriques et les actualités éditoriales ou de recherche, en incluant des professionnels du patrimoine.

CFP ” Socialist Heritage Around the World: A Heritage Without Borders ? ” Heritage Across Borders – ACHS 2018

4th Biennial Conference”Heritage Across Borders”

Association of Critical Heritage Studies,

1-6th September, 2018, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China

 Socialist Heritage Around the World: A Heritage Without Borders? 

Abstract:

This session intends to shed light on the heritage of Socialist pasts around the world. We particularly would like to explore and compare cases of former Soviet States and Republics, but also those of Asia, Latin America and Africa.  Indeed, Socialist world seemed to have been, if not excluded, not enough analyzed in heritage history. Therefore, we propose, not to project ‘Western’ categories onto Socialist countries, but rather to analyze specificity of Socialist conceptions and uses of heritage (Smith 2006) – taking thus on board the new guidelines of the growing scientific fields that are critical heritage studies.

Indeed, in these regimes base(d) on Marxism-Leninism, the edification of Socialism – in the literal and figurative sense – determined artistic, cultural and heritage policies. Ideology undeniably influenced the way of theorizing and ‘making’ heritage (Heinich 2006): it indeed oriented the choice of preserving the monuments of the past, as well as the type of artistic and cultural productions in the present, as also their way to be preserved for the future. Socialist regimes thus left material remains, especially monuments and architectures, that are still omnipresent all around the world. But is Socialist heritage a heritage without borders?

We invite cross-disciplinary papers to explore two main (but not limited) directions:

* First, the session aims to put into perspective ways of thinking and using heritage in Socialist countries. How did the Marxist-Leninist conception of Space and Time directly influenced heritage? What were profound reasons of heritagization in Socialist countries? Is there a “Socialist” interpretation of heritage? How did the Soviet conception of heritage influenced other countries? What are the differences between Socialist conceptions of heritage and those found in the capitalist world?

* Second, the session intends to better grasp the complexity of these “ideological heritages” in the era of post-Socialist transitions and social rupture. Policies toward material remains of Socialist pasts diverge indeed greatly and are often paradoxical, ranging from abandonment to “museumfication” depending on national contexts. We invite paper to precisely analyse the link between history writing, memory, identity (re)constructing and Socialist heritage in post-Socialist countries.

CFP: RAI2018: Redefining the curator, curatorial practice, and curated spaces in anthropology

Panel 064: Redefining the curator, curatorial practice, and curated spaces in anthropology

as part of Art, Materiality and Representation conference hosted by the Royal Anthropological Institute at the British Museum and SOAS 1-3 June 2018

The panel seeks to problematise, locate and define curators and curated spaces in contemporary culture and ethnographic museums in the light of an expanding notion of curation. Special attention will be paid to means in which it can harness the potential of material objects to perform and affect.

Are particularly welcome :
– papers from museum professionals involved in curating (broadly defined)/ engaging in innovative interventions that challenge preconceived ideas of what museums are
– papers that explore the possibilities emerging from digital technologies
– papers that consider questions of curation from public engagement viewpoint
– papers that engage with the concept of curatorial space

To submit a proposal, please send a title, a short summary of up to 300 characters and an abstract of 250 words via the online form by 8 January 2018 at: https://nomadit.co.uk/rai/events/rai2018/conferencesuite.php/paperproposal/6132 <https://nomadit.co.uk/rai/events/rai2018/conferencesuite.php/paperproposal/6132>

Humanity’s capacity for producing an excess of material culture continues at fast pace, while the ‘information age’ society is also faced with managing unprecedented and accelerating data excess. The overwhelming task of selecting from this abundance has led Michael Bhaskar to suggest that ‘we’re all curators now’ (2016: 3). The term ‘curation’ has become prolific in wider society, applied to an increasing range of cultural forms from festival line-ups to digital curated content. This poses the question of the meaning and role of the professional museum curator, particularly in ethnographic museums that have historically sought to collect everything from the everyday.

Collaborative curation in ethnographic museums and the conception of these spaces as ‘contact zones’ have increasingly rendered curators of these museums facilitators in cross-cultural conversation. Similarly, Hans Ulrich Obrist has positioned his own role in the Art World as a catalyst that ‘brings different cultural spheres into contact’ (2014: 24) emphasising relational values over reliance on individual curatorial expertise and subject specialism.

We take the expanding notion of curation as a central discussion point to explore how broader conceptualisation of the curator and curated spaces can enhance understanding of our collections. In particular, we are interested in how curation can harness the potency and expectancy of photographs, objects and sound to make them ‘talk’ (Daston 2007: 221) with special reference to emerging digital technologies. We seek to explore how we may redefine the curator, professional practice and curated spaces to facilitate the making of anthropological knowledge and experiences.

From the “ethnographic museums” to the ethnographies of museums in contemporary, the contribution of Anthropology in relation to the field of museums is significant. Anthropology has maintained from its earliest days a strong relationship with the field of museums. Whether as an area of knowledge in the context of encyclopedic museum institutions, or by creating museum institutions articulated with ethnographic practice, or by constructing a particular look at contemporary museum institutions. Each one of these movements expresses a certain type of insertion of the anthropologist in the practices of the discipline, as well as it reveals singular moments in the intersection of the History of Anthropology and the History of Museums. In a first movement, we have an evolutionist and positivist side of Anthropology, where the collection of objects and their preservation of the museum showed the constitution of documentary collections of reliability for research; in a second movement, we have the creation and institutionalization of the so-called “ethnographic museums” – consecrated models that associated the study of cultural particularities with the preservation of objects collected during field research. In a third movement, anthropologists became interested in museum ethnographers as symptoms of social practices and spaces of power linked to value regimes that convert artifacts into consecrated goods (collectivist logics); cultural expressions and ways of making “assets”; rituals in public performances; people in “representatives” and “spokespersons” of ethnicities and communities. The Anthropology of Museums Dossier aims to gather works on this field of research and reflection, opening space for reports of experiences on the professional practice of the Anthropologist in interface with museums, whether articulated to specific practices of “ethnographic museums”, or doing “ethnographies of museums in the contemporary “. The Dossier also intends to open a reflection on the specificity of the “ethnographic museum” and the new modalities of anthropological museums such as “indigenous museums”, “social museums” and “eco-museums”.

Dos “museus etnográficos” às etnografias dos museus no contemporâneo, a contribuição da Antropologia na relação com o campo dos museus é significativa. A Antropologia manteve desde seus primórdios forte relação com o campo dos museus. Seja como área de conhecimento no contexto das instituições museais de cunho enciclopédico, seja criando instituições museais articuladas com a prática etnográfica; seja construindo um olhar particular sobre as instituições museais no contemporâneo. Cada um destes movimentos, expressa um certo tipo de inserção do antropólogo nas práticas da disciplina, bem como revela momentos singulares no cruzamento da História da Antropologia e da História dos Museus. Num primeiro movimento, temos uma vertente evolucionista e positivista da Antropologia, onde a coleta de objetos e sua conservação nos museus expressavam a constituição de acervos documentais de confiabilidade para as pesquisas; num segundo movimento, temos a criação e institucionalização dos chamados “museus etnográficos” – consagrados modelos que associavam o estudo das particularidades culturais à preservação de objetos coletados durante a pesquisa de campo. Num terceiro movimento, os antropólogos passaram a se interessar por etnografar os museus como sintomas de práticas sociais e espaços de poder conjugados a regimes de valor que convertem artefatos em bens consagrados (lógicas colecionistas); expressões culturais e modos de fazer em “bens patrimoniais”; rituais em performances públicas; pessoas em “representantes” e “porta-vozes” de etnias e comunidades. O Dossiê “Antropologia dos Museus” visa reunir trabalhos sobre este campo de pesquisas e reflexões, abrindo espaço para relatos de experiências sobre a prática profissional do Antropólogo na interface com museus, seja articulados a práticas específicas dos “museus etnográficos”, seja realizando “etnografias de museus no contemporâneo”. O Dossiê pretende ainda abrir uma reflexão sobre a especificidade do “museu etnográfico” e as novas modalidades de museus na perspectiva antropológica como os “museus indígenas”, os “museus sociais”, os “eco-museus”.

Ressources : “Répertoire des ressources documentaires du ministère de la Culture”, édition électronique 2017

Le nouveau Répertoire des ressources documentaires du ministère de la Culture présente, en 164 fiches proposant un accès direct aux ressources documentaires en ligne, les ressources physiques et numériques du ministère français de la Culture, de ses services déconcentrés et des établissements qui lui sont rattachés.

Inspiré de l’ouvrage édité en 1994 Se documenter au ministère de la Culture et de la Francophonie (La Documentation française), ce répertoire partage le même objectif de faciliter l’accès aux diverses formes de production documentaire dans le domaine culturel. L’essor du support numérique et les politiques de numérisation et d’accessibilité des ressources culturelles ont toutefois considérablement enrichi l’offre proposée au public. L’accent a donc été mis, dans cette édition 2017, sur les ressources en ligne, privilégiant l’accès direct : ressources pédagogiques, bases de données, catalogues de collections, etc., intéressant en cela en particulier les professionnels du patrimoine, les responsables de formation, les enseignants-chercheurs et les étudiants.
