2008 Conference: 'Museum Ethnography At Home'
Conference Organisers: Alison Petch & Chris Wingfield
10 & 11 April, St John's College and Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford
Museums of anthropology are supposed to be fascinated by 'the other', the material culture of exotic cultures and remote places, far from the site of the museums. However, the Pitt Rivers Museum is not the only UK ethnographic museum which actually has large ethnographic and archaeological collections from its own country.
