disciplinary cannibalism

When History Meets Anthropology

 

Anne-Christine Taylor and Thierry Dufrêne


The time has long since past when objects from non-Western civilisations only found a place in museums, when museum displays presented “beautiful” objects. The boundaries between the two disciplines have become permeable: historians and anthropologists share their methods, approaches and perspectives.
