Research award for ‘Museum, Field, Metropolis, Colony: Practices of social governance’

Rodney Harrison is one of the partner investigators on the research project ‘Museum, Field, Metropolis, Colony: Practices of social governance’, which was recently awarded $AUD238,000 funding over three years by the Australian Research Council Discovery Projects.

The project will comprise a comparative international study of the role played by anthropology museums in the cultural governance of both colonial and metropolitan populations during the early fieldwork phase of anthropology. It will address these questions in relation to Australian, New Zealand, French, British and North American museums in the first half of the twentieth century.
