Ethnology: a science on display
‘If ethnology has something to tell us, the ethnographic object remains, for its part, all too frequently silent.’ So saying, Fabrice Grognet shows how, despite constant evolution and change, ethnographic museums are still far from having found a way to make their collections speak. The author is an assistant at the Musée de l'Homme in Paris. He holds a diploma of advanced studies in museology from the National Museum of Natural History in Paris and an M.A. in ethnology from the Sorbonne.
