What is the role and place of anthropology in museums in the 21st century? Thinking about these questions, alongside the legacies, ethical issues and potentials of museum collections, these seminars bring together scholars to have conversations around ideas animating research at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History. This series builds upon the Summer Institute in Museum Anthropology’s goal of putting theory and things together. Each seminar involves a conversation between two scholars and a NMNH postdoctoral fellow.
