Presentation

Considering heritage making as a long term process, the proposed workshop aims to explore « founding moments » preceding institutionalization brought by heritage politics. It also aims to look at the on-going development of long established heritage process, at the light of the constant re-use of the past to create the « new presents ».

The explorations of this founding stage will focus on the fluid figure of “passeurs de mémoires” (relayers of memories), viewed in this perspective as “founding actors”. These local figures “paved the way” for the future arena of heritage by their passionate work toward what is not yet conceived as “heritage”, but as “local traditions”, and as such is often viewed as source or markers of local identities. The power struggle in this arena may sometimes hide, deny or underestimate the founding work carried on at the very early stage of heritage making by these local personalities. The visibility provided by the institutionalization may later place in the front stage more powerful institutional actors closer or/and belonging to the local or national or transnational networks of power.

“Passion” and “charisma” often distinguish these local personalities that we may not only describe as the “ones who know”, but as the “ones who care”. The contributions of this workshop will attempt to provide sensitive portraits of these personalities whose passion or/and charisma have paved the way for the process that creates heritage.

It is our conviction that laying the foundations of what happened in the past will contribute to a better understanding of the mutations of the cultural heritage politics of the present.

Open session, double panel

This workshop aims to bring together anthropologists who are engaged on long term ethnographic fieldwork research carried out at different times and in various social and political context.

We have already gathered 5 confirmed papers based on anthropological research on cross-border fieldwork studies in Africa and France, Mexico and the USA, and within the inner ethnic frontiers of China (Han and non Han), and in Portugal. We are also pleased to count among one of our panelists, Ms. Pan Yao, Head of the Center of Intangible Cultural Heritage of the Sui autonomous district of Sandu in Guizhou province (China).

As a double panel in an open session, three other papers may be accepted. They will enrich the case studies and discussion. Proposals are welcome.

The proposed papers will address issues related to the following subthemes of the Conference:

  • Museum Challenging boundaries;
  • Connecting the rural and urban;
  • The past, present and future

CFP: RAI 2018 Bodies of Archives/Archival Bodies (P029).

This is part of the Art, Materiality and Representation Conference hosted by the Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI) at The British Museum, Clore Centre and SOAS, London, 1st-3rd June 2018.

Convenors: Jennifer Clarke (Gray’s School of Art, RGU), Giulia Battaglia (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle) and Fiona Siegenthaler (University of Basel)

*Abbreviated Abstract*

This panel calls for academic and artistic interventions that discuss objects, images *and/or bodies* as archives of experiences and processes.

Our panel begins with the premise that archives, prone to decay, dissolution and re-arrangement, are permanently in process. Our interest is not limited to objects, but also to the idea of the body (or collective bodies) as archives of experience.

In particular, we are interested in the archive’s potential for collaborative artistic and ethnographic practices: What forms of collaborative work does the archive offer? In what ways can the collective sensibility of the archive be explored? What can we gain from a process-based notion of the archive? What implications does this have on the role of the archive in art and anthropology, and for the practices related to it in particular?

*Please provide a proposal by 8th January 2018 to the following online form*:

http://nomadit.co.uk/rai/events/rai2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6079

Proposals must consist of a paper title, a short abstract of less than 300 characters and an abstract of 250 words. The inclusion of multimedia, film, audio, or other elements as part of the presentation would be very welcome. Please contact the convenors if you would like any further information.

Full abstract:

The concept of the ‘archive’ had arguably received insufficient critical attention in anthropology until relatively recently despite its central role in research practices. However, recent work has highlighted the significance of archives for the future of anthropology (Kohl 2013), and ideas about the ‘archive’ as a static repository of history are being challenged. Interdisciplinary experimentations with forms of archive/archiving are increasingly emerging (cf. the anarchive) raising important questions about both the collaborative and processural nature of archives (Manning 2016).

This panel begins with the premise that archives, prone to decay, dissolution and re-arrangement, are permanently in process (cf. http://grapaub.org/en/archive/). This perspective enables us to engage with cleavages and links between past knowledge and future imagination, as well as the role of representation. Our interest is not limited to objects, but also to the idea of the body (or collective bodies) as archives of experience.

In particular, we are interested in the archive’s potential for collaborative artistic and ethnographic practices: What forms of collaborative work does the archive offer? In what ways can the collective sensibility of the archive be explored? What can we gain from a process-based notion of the archive? What implications does this have on the role of the archive in art and anthropology, and for the practices related to it in particular?

Through this panel we call for papers and art/media interventions that explore a variety of contemporary understandings of ‘archive’ that open up for individuals, groups and institutions possibilities to produce creative anthropological and artistic work.

CFP: Cultural Heritage, Social Cohesion and Place Attachment – Budapest, 20-21 March, 2018, Call for Papers

Call for Papers 2018

The Centre for Social Sciences (Hungarian Academy of Sciences) is
organizing a workshop on

*Cultural Heritage, Social Cohesion and Place Attachment*

between *20–21 March 2018*.

The main focus of this workshop will be to explore the relationship between
cultural heritage (both built/material and intangible/immaterial), social
cohesion and place attachment. The workshop serves as a foundation for
future joint research applications especially to the EU Calls for Horizon
2020.

The workshop seeks to identify case studies and examples of these processes
in action in both urban and rural contexts. Ideally, presented papers
should focus on the relationship between cultural heritage, place
attachment and social cohesion, or a partial combination of these themes.
However, papers will also be welcome which focus on the role of cultural
heritage and/or cultural tourism in urban and rural development and the
implications for local residents or communities.

Selected papers of the workshop will be considered for publication in the
2018 English special issue of *Socio.hu Social Science Review*, the
double-blind peer-review journal of the Institute of Sociology, Centre for
Social Sciences, Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

CFP: Atelier doctoral “Le musée comme terrain: stratifications des héritages coloniaux” (Paris)

En 2017-2018, un atelier doctoral portant sur Le musée comme terrain: stratifications des héritages coloniaux, sera proposé en lien avec le séminaire EHESS-ENS Réécrire le passé colonial : enjeux contemporains des collections de musée, afin de saisir de façon concrète la nature des collections dans leur dimension matérielle.

En travaillant avec la notion de biographie des objets et des collections, on interrogera le musée sur ce qu’il peut nous apprendre de « la vie sociale » des ensembles collectés en contexte colonial entre la fin du XIXe et la première moitié du XXe siècle. Cette recherche visera à appréhender, dans leurs complexités et leurs contradictions, des fonds qui constituent les traces matérielles des héritages coloniaux dans différents musées français et allemands. Chaque séance se déroulera dans une institution différente, musée ou archive, et la recherche sera organisée en collaboration avec un-e conservateur/trice du musée, un-e commissaire d’exposition, un(e) artiste ou un(e) archiviste. En s’invitant dans les coulisses de l’institution, il s’agit d’observer les différentes pratiques des professionnels du musée (classement, restauration, présentation), d’analyser en somme les processus de patrimonialisation des objets. En effet, l’anthropologie du musée vise à démêler et à transmettre les multiples épistémès qu’il recouvre et au sein desquels les objets prennent sens. Les visites organisées dans les musées donneront lieu à des études de cas approfondies qui permettront de valider l’atelier.

L’atelier s’inscrit dans l’axe « Anthropologie des héritages coloniaux » du Centre Maurice Halbwachs, CMH (CNRS, École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales de Paris, ENS/ PSL Research University). D’autres institutions et projets sont associées à l’atelier: le Département d’histoire de l’art de l’Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, le Département d’Arts Plastiques de l’Université Paris 8 Vincennes Saint Denis, le Département de sciences sociales de l’Ecole normale supérieure, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (The Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage), et l’Université Paris Lumières pour le projet Glissements de terrain. Les collections muséales réinvesties par le champ de l’art contemporain (2017-2018).

Responsables de l’atelier:

Il débutera en décembre 2017 et sera ouvert à un nombre limité de doctorant.e.s. Les doctorant.e.s intéressé.e.s doivent envoyer une courte présentation de leur recherche doctorale (max. 3 pages) et un CV, avant la fin du mois de novembre, via email : reecrirelepasse@gmail.com
