Workshop Itineraries, Collections and Provincial Museums (1770-1920)

Du 29 mai 2017 au 30 mai 2017

Journée organisée par Irina Podgorny (Museo de La Plata-CONICET, Argentine) et Nathalie Richard (Université du Maine, CERHIO CNRS, France)

Workshop organisé dans le cadre du projet Itineraries, Collections and  Provincial Museums (1770-1920) , avec le soutien financier du CPER DI2L2S

The aim of this workshop is to extend and consolidate existing collaborations between researchers in the history of natural history, archaeology and ethnography, as well as in the history of science museums and collections in the long nineteenth century (ca. 1770-1920).

The landscape of nineteenth-century museums and collections is much wider, more nuanced and complex than the traditional historiography, centered on the main collections assembled by northern Europe's colonial powers, has suggested. Museums and collections were the creatures of individual actors and resulted from complex relationships, institutional settings, environmental conditions, contingencies, diverse cultural contexts and social constellations. This project focuses on museums and collections in the so-called peripheries: the colonial and post-colonial territories, and the European provinces. It will show how artifacts, plants and substances, through their relationship with people, travelled and connected the world in the period, creating networks that were not centralized around the European national museums.
